Whose with me... Let's all call Nakheel and tell them we will volunteer to build it. The only thing we'd want is the standard lunch breaks and an easily accessible AC room.

I am partially serious.

We *still* have time on our hands so expect Imre to bring more future "HISTORY" shots.
Well 50 isn't all that old really right.. Oh the transition from Girl to Woman has already passed I'm afraid. Don't remind me either!

Ain't that the truth! We'll be be viewing the good ol' lock & chains here for many a moon yet! I don't know whether to laugh or cry about that? ? ?

Classic Imre!

Poor little teddy all wrapped in chains guarding the NHT wasteland...

The only one on site who is actually doing any work!

They said that this project was on Holding for a year during Dubai Cityscape. If that is true, then when Cityscape starts, this project should restart. But then again, this is my wishful thinking on my part.

I have a feeling it will get built somehow but I won't be surprised if construction stops just to training construction workers like it happened to Burj Dubai few years ago then finish building it.

Funny, even these pictures could be historic. One day this shady looking construction site, will be the place for the first 1km high skyscraper in the world. Or at least the second .

Teddy may have been drugged... or is a masochist, caught in the act. At least, the victim finally managed to escape in the meantime.

Let's hope in the medium term construction will roll, so there's more to do here than having fun and speculate.
