I also read 20 km of barrettes in the website of the tower, there is 392 barrettes, so nearly 50 m for each barrettes.

That was the depth from where they took soil samples from

I think the design is great from the air, its a star and a crescent moon - for Islam, lets hope it wont be delayed.

They can spend $20,000,000 on fireworks but then lay off 500 jobs and delay projects tut tut!.

the cityscape model was amazing.... anyone know where it is now? for viewing, do they have a new sales center yet for Harbour, or just site office?
