Nakheel pulls off Cityscape coup

How the Dubai-based developer stole the show before it even started with news of its plan to build world's tallest tower.

Come on guys! I am getting seriously disappointed by your quality of journalism, if you can call it that. Rob is right, this does indeed sound like a press release by the developer. An annoucement of something that might or might not start in a year or two does not mean much in my book. "I want to have my face on the one-dollar bill" - now does that mean anything to anyone? Nakheel's move was nothing more than another piece of spin from the Dubai real estate hype machine trying to save itself from the inevitible crash. They are playing on people's logical falacies, where they think that the "demand leads to building" relationship holds in reverse.

Lotsa boosterism, too little objectivity in this piece. "...when it comes to be built," "...will be the centerpiece," etc. Maybe it will. Maybe it won't. This reads more like a press release than something serious.
