I suppose some of those imported laborers could eventually live in some of these places. It would probably be better to sell some of the units in some buildings for little money rather than nothing.

Seeing as how the average wage for a skilled carpenter working on the Burj Dubai is around $7.60 *per day* and laborers "earn" $4.00 *per day* (according to Wikipedia), they better have a very creative mortgage financing scheme in place.
