First the fire on that tower u/c, now the Infinity incident - 2007 so far just hasn't been a good year for Dubai construction, has it?
I don't want to sound accusatory, but perhaps shoddy construction techniques/work has begun to catch up with some of these contractors? I hope more problems don't surface in 20, 30, or 50 years from now that require demolition of some of these buildings, or, heaven forbid, and earthquake or something. Is Dubai even in an Earthquake Zone? I know Iran is and thats just across the gulf.

WOW, That is an amazing picture! I mean amazing in a shocking way, not like "awesome! a year or so of people's hard work down the drain'.
