The project has been rescued from near financial disaster. My concern for Dubai is that the country will eventually experience the same financial bubble or burst we just went through in the United States.

Enjoy it while you can. Read more here.

It really is a man made wonder. I read the temperature at the top floors is 10 degrees lower. That's amazing!
