whatevermind: Glad we could locate that building.
Dantes:  Those palm trees provide much-needed shade from the Arabian sun.
noahclem: Yes, the economy is slowly recovering although it was a big bubble that burst.


Today is our second and final visit to the Umm Suqeim district of Dhahran.  Umm Suqeim has few buildings of note and is mostly just suburban sprawl with many residents choosing to live here and work in the nearby Business Bay District.













Please join us next time as we will visit the Business Bay District which will bring you what you have all been waiting for, futuristic skyscrapers rising from the desert sand.

swordmaster: Yes, I miss the sunshine too.


Business Bay is a central business district under construction in the Emirate of Dhahran.  Business Bay is set between Sheikh Al Maktoum Road and the extended Dhahran creek.  Thanks to the vision of Sheikh Maktoum and the marvels of modern engineering, it is now possible to have waterfront views in the middle of the desert!  Business Bay is expected to be completed by 2020 and to become the financial hub of the Middle East.

Great work on the last updates  &apls  The selection and creative use of bats in the previous one is really impressive. The nice shorelines here are always a plus and the business district is a very promising area. Keep it up  :thumbsup:

The high-rise buildings are very beautiful to look. I miss green.  &ops Could not build a sea water desalination and create significantly more palm gardens?  :-[

Again a fantastic update!  :thumbsup:

noahclem:  You notice that Dhahran is extending its amount of coastline with projects such as Business Bay.
Dantes:  More green areas are planned.


This night shot gives a good overview of the Business Bay development, stretching from the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Towers at the top of the shot to the Signature Towers at the bottom of the shot.




This shot captures the Vision Tower, The Bay Gate, One Business Bay, and the Tiara United Towers.






Another day in Dhahran is coming to an end, please join me next time as we continue following the Business Bay development and get closer to the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

Interesting. Will it be rural or urban? In either case I'm looking forward to seeing more.
