    Wow, they're really going all out with this one, over 2200 feet tall, I didn't think they were allowed to build a tower over 2000 feet.

    wont be too much longer before it over-takes the tallest free standing structure in the world, the CN Tower which is 1,815 feet tall.

    speaking as an architect...

    ...frickin whoop dee doo.

    that said, talking abt realty, dubai is totally where its at. they have this reclamation project, marina living, where the island lots are in the shape of the continents.

    also, my partner liaise with this guy in dubai whos trying to be our front runner. that guy loves him some spam forwarding. i lost it when he sent us britneys commando pics.

    It's gonna be hilarious when their oil wells run dry and they lose their main infrastructure.

    you dont know what the hell youre talking about dont you?

    dubai is setting up itself as the commerce centre for that region, which, in the context of its neighbours which are comparably backwards, would be like taking candy from a child.

    see singapore. see hong kong. resources reliant economy is relatively a redundant concept.

    turbocharger fails at sociopolitical geography.

    Dubai is really doing a great job at putting themselves on the cutting edge. I just can't wait for an United States project to leapfrog past them.
