nice shots ZZ-ll the tower looking more like it should with more cladding.
But I just can't imagine mile high tower being twice high as this.
Question: on 1st and 2nd photo, there's line of gap in cladding above 4th mechanical floor. Is this because of elevator path?

Build on!

Sounds good, but what do you mean?

A lot of water then! Unless they recycle it or something? Looks great and the buildings are spread out - more open space.

Check this out . I think it's in the same class as Frank Lloyd Wright's mile high in Chicago from 50 years ago.

For those who have flown into Dubai? Does one get to have such views of the city before landing?

If so, I would feel sooooooo very excited to be landing in Dubai!!!
