From that aerial, it looks like their's too much construction surrounding it for it to be close to any water.

The bottom of the building kind of looks like a cruise ship.

I like. They seem to be building their tourist interests with amazing hotels.


It does look a bit barren on the otherhand still.

Probably because the whole area's a massive construction site. I hope it turns out nice when all the landscaping and surrounding towers are done

Man, they don't mess around in Dubai. Those are HUGE floorplates and they're going up very quickly.
