Hi all.

Nice diagram update as always Cul.

On another note just to get the levels straight ...

- 160 levels - not counting the 4 lower levels.
- Add 6 - for Ground level, 155 mezz., 158 mezz., 160 mezz.1, 160 mezz. 2, and 160 mezz. 3
- Subtract 4 - for skipped levels 41, 74, 110, and 137.
= 162 levels.

in 7 to 10 years the whole area around Business Bay will be full of it. and with the new development of Mohammed Bin Rashid Gardens,Some 73 per cent of the total area roughly 60 square kilometres will be covered in greenery. so you will see alot of green
