I'm not an expert like Culwulla but I know it was taken on 5th of May, you can see that on the site at "Source".

And?

We can post 3000 more since there is a post limit off 10.000

A year or something like that, it would have been a post limit off 500!!!!

Significant progress and time to upgrade to 15.000 posts!

Cheers

Economically, yes, Dubai's tall buildings are wasteful. But there are other reasons to build tall besides land scarcity.

Some build tall buildings for their architectural and esthetic beauty. Some build tall buildings for the challenge. Others build tall buildings for vanity and ego. Still others build tall building for publicity. The investor gets to chose why.

Is that a security camera hanging down in the right hand side of this photo next to the Index? It would be great if Emaar fed the video into a web server so we could all watch. Burj Dubai TV!

Lol, in your dreams. Would be cool but just don't think so.

New York and Hong Kong both started out as flat cities. Skyscrapers aren't built just because of lack of horizontal room. They add prestige to the companies within it. They are symbols and they are art. Even my home town, a puny little nothing in North Carolina called Greensboro has moderately sized skyscrapers.
