ESB, constructed during Great Depression, take several years to have a fully occupancy why not Dubai ?

Send it over to me and make the deal of your life
Actually, my odds are:
Princess Tower...... 1,8/1
The Torch............. 3 /1
23 Marina............. 10 /1
and
Princess Tower for tallest overall plus Ocean Heights for temporarily tallest roof/floor (combined bet).... 12 /1
