Ugh! How hideously wasteful!

And what about the "Ladies' and Childrens' Beach" on Ras Al Akhdhar that has been under redevelopment for several years? It was quite a large project, and a lot of work had been done on it already. Is it just going to be demolished?

Disgusting.

More than that I can imagine.

Emirates Palace cost something like $900 million.
I would say about the same price. It depends if they want everything to be done in gold or not.
Emirates Palace was $3-4billion, 11aed billion+. This will probably be in the $5-8billion dollar range, 16-20aed billion+. That is speculation mind you, but it seems fair enough based on the Palace's price. Staggering sums far surpassing the Burj Dubai.
