I......can't.........wait.......


If all of the units are added together, I am almost positive this would be the largest resort in the world. Will it be considered the largest in the world though since there is such an emphasis in the different buildings?

^^ The sawtooth effect of the glass though will be fantastic when passing by. I think it will look great when finished

Am I looking at the pictures of Veer wrong or are they building these towers with leaning reinforced concrete? I didn't think that was possible since concrete handles tension so poorly. Have there been any other major projects like this?

If you look close allt the supports going up are straight... it's just the outside ones that will veer.

I noticed a picture of an artist named Utada Hikaru on two of the Veer's renders. On the first one it is at the bottom part of the picture and the second it is more apparent. Did these come like that orginally or did someone put those for fun heh.
