Dubai Under Construction

How do you build a mega city in a couple of decades? Endless money, labor and space. Dubai combines the three elements into a giant construction show. Time to gawk.

Building big, the foundation.

Selling the future. Which is sometimes put on hold.

The glitz! The morning sun spritzing up a construction site near the Burj Khalifa.

How big is Dubai going to be? This sandy, wide median will eventually be filled with more lanes for the road that runs between the buildings. Out in the periphery of the city, mundane apartment buildings.

The labor, imported from Asia, mostly India, Nepal and Bangladesh.

Moving the labor around. Buses lined up at a construction site. Temporary city of construction office (and living) trailers.

The future is near, right behind the ever-present construction fence.
