Whatever they build over there is cursed because it is a product of slavery and no, the pyramids were not built by slaves as some ignorant newly rich
from UAE or Dubai will point out.
Also there is a history of constant strife in these parts of the world for a reason.
Watch how the highest peak in their tourist period (which is summer) will not be what was initially expected.
Watch how they will have to scale down their initial projects and probably have to terminate some of them.
Maybe the recent crisis and what will follow will signal political and social changes for this region of the world.
We may as well witness these "monuments" changing owners in a not very distant future.
All the above are just moderate estimations about the future.
Don't envy them.
It is easy to earn a place in the sun among the rich that might already have property in there, only thing you have to do is sell your soul to the
Devil. Cheney's potential property in Dubai or UAE might probably be a gift to him and to similar others, because he was very instrumental for
creating thousands of jobless and homeless across neighboring countries so Dubai and UAE could have their slaves flooding over the borders.

Humanity current logic and strategy is flawed.
All the morals behind this "wonder" are wrong.
What amazes us is what it appeals most in our senses, hence its the view itself, this feeling, not even how mechanics managed to make it stand.
We could have every human being including those poor souls slaving away to build these "monuments" of shame to having an even more amazing view that
our sold souls to the Devil would earn us.
Now in the best circumstance we can only own a tiny spec of room and enjoy the "view" of just the Dubai gulf for probably few mornings of the year,
while following different morals and strategy as a species, not just the top world idiots who are lining to sell their souls to the Devil for peanuts,
but every one of us, would have it easy to enjoy not just this ugly dust bowl but every place on earth and even every place on 100ths of earths.
Building on a totally new vision.
THAT'S WHAT HUMANITY NEEDS!
Not some more of the products of our faulted logic and strategy.
Nobody should be surprised if this peace of junk will come crashing down either by a dubious scheme or by natural/geological causes. (unpredicted of
course by our faulted logic)
