The design is one of the best I've ever seen!

The important question is not if this tower is going to be built or not.
World is entering a dramatic age, crisis, wars and conflicts will multiply and spread. Capitalistic production system is absolutely unable to manage the extremely powerful social and natural forces and contradictions that have been uplifted. The time has arrived to destroy these productive forces, as always in the past, and then to re-divide the Earth among new winners. Let's hope people will succeed in organizing a revolutionary international leninist party.

Yeah by all means the city in the video is stunning and quite an achievement if only a fraction of it is built but i dont think it will outdo every other city in the world by a factor of ten. it will be a while before dubai gets the kind of soul and atmosphere associated to places like London, Paris and New York.

I think you are confusing 2011 with 1911. Get back in your time machine Trotsky

I don't know why people continue to feel the need to respond to that nonsense. Unless there are any news about this project the thread may as well remain as dead as this proposal. And while we are on the subject, I don't think that "App" is an appropriate status for this thread anymore. It's dead and gone.
