Is any change to play music when fountains are in active?

I saw in last pics that exterior elevators are not "exist" any more; so probably interior elevators should be in use.

Wow! The amount of amazing photography on the construction as a whole so far has been unbelievable!
Does anyone here have any type of clearance to get inside and take any pics? Due to the lack so far, I would guess probably not, but if anyone does it would sure be cool to see what they are working on inside.

unfortunately, the last time someone got anywhere near that building to take pictures, he almost got arrested for breaking into an unauthorized area.
that was kinda fun though

Maybe EMAAR did, maybe they didn't, however that fact is meaningless in relation to apartments being up for sale. For many their purchases were an investment or a speculative purchase ... and then might be the ones who now can't afford the mortgage/payment plan and are discarding them.

Actually, Johannesburg has the largest man made forest in the world.

But, nonetheless, it's still amazing that they have turned the desert into this lush oasis of canals and green spaces.
