Those are the towers I'm concern that will not find people to fill them up. With everithing "growing-up" in Dubai, the demand will be less and less over the years.

For NT, I'm sure they will find tenants.

Wow, they seriously want to build a 1km+ tower. Amazing.

A round of applause for Nakheel.

And may I ask. Is Nakheel the largest or one of the largest developers in Dubai?

Please. Nakheel. Transform Manila! Wah!
Nakheel and Emaar are the two largest developers in Dubai.

I am not sure what the exact order is in terms of size.

There are surprisingly many trees and shrubs in the natural landscape. Much more than I expected. There must be groundwater because natural rainfall is too low and too variable to sustain such vegetation.

Hi all.

This thing will be 95m. in diameter. so even with the fact that it is 4 "buildings" around a void it is still huge. The void lets the wind through so they can keep that gigantic diameter right up to near the top.
