I dont know what to say, Dubai has an insane amount of development. I can believe that they have the labour to do what they are doing in the amount of time they are doing it in. I wonder where all the people are coming from to occupy all that real estate.

It amazes me that so few average people know about Dubai. I was aware of all the development but even looking at the pictures it seams unreal, I must go but I think I will wait a decade.

Obviously, economics has no effect on the decisions made when proposing and constructing inordinate amounts of real estate and office buildings. I want to see Dubai hotels full with guests; I want to see condos lighting up the Dubai night sky. In reality, all I see is empty condos at night, vacant Mall parking lots, and empty homes on the Palms.

PS: Great pictures Tom - Dubai really is a magnificent city waiting for its future inhabitants.

Pictures not only can mean 1000 words, but they reveal the truth as well.

Yeah but if you have the slightest of cues on the subject ... and that's not the case here.

Do you care to enlighten me with factual details that oppose my claim rather than jumping to the hasty conclusion that I don't know anything?

What a lovely idea to show those pictures.

I always wondered about this commieblock like building in the centre in the middle:



This seems an "old" building which should have been built while there was nothing around , probably one of the first buildings on the SZR.
When was it built ?
