Well somehow, the sands might bounce off to other directions. But I guess they do occur in low altitudes, unless if there's hills of sands.

I agree.

There will be not a single skyscraper closer to the building then what already there



... and the "opinion" that it does not dominate the skyline is laughable.

I think what he means is at the moment it doesn't form the 'pinnacle' of the skyline, which i agree it doesn't. It does dominate it however.

The media calls persons who spend in a careless or flashy way "conspicuous consumers." I would like to coin a new phrase. Groups that invest in a careless or flashy way are conspicuous investors.

Not a hardcore fan of Dubai, but heck... Those pictures made me feel like they were made in 2050 or something. Great shots, futuristic skyline!
