The Death Star looking one was a Baku proposal and it was more ovoid than spherical

Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing pyramids in Dubai. It's in the desert, and Egypt is getting too dangerous to visit. Heck, even the one in Las Vegas - also in the desert - looks great.

There was a Death Star in the visualisations for the Dubai Waterfront project. Not really a proposal, just an artist's impression of what the Waterfront could look like. I think that's what he's referring to, though.

Would be interesting to know how much the core has risen since april. But i don't expect too much since the project isn't moving very fast.

Maybe the developer thought about how highrise living works and send the architect back to the drawing board.

I live on the 12th floor with only 5 floors above me but the amount of stuff (cigarette butts, soda cans, milk cartons, plastic...) ending up on my balcony is unbelievable.

And when I take the stairs I see that boys (never girls) can't help spitting or dropping things to see how far it falls before hitting the railing.

And that's not counting the printers, monitors, frying pans, a suicide and a guy that had forgotten his key and attempted to climb from his neighbors balcony to his own that end up in front of the house.

The design of this tower is going to kill someone at some point.

(Hmmm. I actually liked the place I live until I wrote this )
