indeed it unfortunately has a tendency to wind up like that, On the big construction projects.

But the city is also a very vibrant and lovely place that should be experienced


i just hope this complex lifts off again would be great

AltinD, it's not a Nissan, it's actually a SEAT Toledo.

When it's finished, I think it will look really good. I was undecided until now, but the more I look at it, the more I am sure it will look fantastic

Yeah indeed it looks immense and fantastic. And very unique

You can kinda sum the Design up by saying that 1970s UNited states Skyscraper design clashed with Dubai and got put on steroids. Kinda like four supersided New York Un Buildings conjoined at the roof.


It will probably reap plenty of design and architectural awards if they stick thight to the renderings and the roof.

Roughly Compared to the Towers in the big block of Dubai marina the Skyscraper will be same lenght as the Tamani hotel- ocean heights-marina crown- and elite residence combined and that is with the streets in between those Skyscrapers included. and about the height of Ocean heights.

There's no reason to guess that, if the actual inverstors doesn't... someone else will, even if the have to change the project.
