Come on, it's Dubai. The odds are at least 50%...

I remember 2-3 years ago when I was one of the few people who actually believed that Dubai will build all the things it proposed like the Burj Dubai and everybody called me crazy. Today almost all are u/c.

So wait and see and don't be surprised if they will really build this.

It looks crazy, but then, if anyone can pull it off, the wondrous UAE can.

As ever, I continue to salute their boldness and determination in building the greatest city on Earth.

*its a shame repulsor lift anti-grav tech doesn't exist, or you could be sure the UAE would be building 'cloud city'. Oh well, one day maybe.

They can propose and build anything without giving it a second thought, and they are doing it.

Say what you want, but you have to admit this is cool as can be. If it really does get built just imagine what it'll look like.

Everyone's picking on Dubai, but I think Las Vegas has done worse things. Atleast Dubai has the creative genius to think up these things.

This project isn't real anyway, probably just a vision by some architects, same as X-Seed 4000 or something like that.

I don't know what I think about because the renderings are so vague. Maybe it's cool?

How will people get to it if there are no elevators?

Chew on that for a couple of minutes.

Cloud city right ? They'll have those twin pod things, which just kinda...hover.

Dubai, once again leading the world in engineering and boldness.
