My opinion about the arabian Gulf region is that it will recover within this year. The reason is that here we have small countries and rich oil income, recovery might be alot easier than other countries and regions in the world.
I am working in related construction work, many project still going on, rumers that everything on hold will go back to work in time. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashed - ruler of Dubai state- is a very active man, and after what he acheived in Dubai in the last few years I really beleive he will be the first to escape the crisis and put Dubai back on its feet!
After all, the crisis is all about money and its liquidity, and that shouldnt be the biggest worry of the gulf state countries in the long run.
We have to be optimistic....what we beleive is what we can reach!

and beside optimistic, we should not ignore the fact that Abu Dhabi is supporting Dubai as its the capital of the same country UAE, and Abu Dhabi is by far one of the richest cities in the world!
I know I might sound naive, but I think things will be fine !!

Did you have to quote all three images to ask a simple question?
That building appeared on an artist's impression of a proposal to extend the Dubai Marina.

Oh, no... If you'd stop, something would be missing. malec's drawings are great, no doubt - but they don't show the real progress up to date. I always appreciate all your diagrams... hope it ain't too much work for you.

Btw. this 270m-box in front of 23 Marina is new for me. Can someone tell me, what it is?

It's the Mada'in Hotel. They were doing piling in December, no idea what's happening with it now.
See this thread in the Dubai Marina subforum.
ETA.. apparently it's on hold.
