Plans Revealed!



The plans for the new Financial District have been revealed! Construction is now in full sway, and it is only a matter of time now, before these pictures become reality.

The plans for the financial district. It offers space for financial offices, international banks, the bank of Abu Dubai, 7 buildings for other banks and/or financial businesses, a convention centre and a stock market. The buildings are set near the sea, and a canal will be realised to offer enjoyable working space. A boulevard marks the end of the Financial District.

Don't they worrie being so close to the water like that? And building on soft sand... even if they drill the supports thousands of feet below the ground there are just all kinds of problems from building that dense to the water.

<_< Does look nice though

Thnx. Regarding your question. If you dont have a solid underground, those buildings would indeed be in trouble. If the foundation is properly supported (i.e. a rocky underground) with the use of columns, it is stable. This bedrock doesnt necessarliy have to be thousends of feet below the ground. I live in the Netherlands, and here almost all buildings are supported in this way (instead of a bedrock, it is a steady clay underground). There arent many problems with building that close to the water. (New York, Dubai, Hong Kong, etc are all build close to water)
