"Dubai : Dubai Pearl, a 1.85 million-square-metre mixed-use luxury development implemented by Pearl Dubai F Z LLC, is set to be complete by 2013."

Holy cow! That's almost double the floor space of the entire World Trade Center complex! (which I believe is around 10 million sq. feet)

If you mean THE elephant building (witch means to many people: the very ugly one ), it's in Thailand not China. And I really hope en think this building will be so much better than the elephant building.

What is the actual status of this one now? Are construction workers and material on site, or does the site looks deserted and empty?
