Who is going to live in all those houses?
That’s the question that comes to mind when you visit Cityscape Dubai.

Cityscape Dubai is huge, and Kipp was really impressed with the creativity and the effort put into making the stands.
But the first question we were tempted to ask was: Who’s actually going to live in these houses? While it is true that people are pouring into the city (according to official data last year, some 292,000 more people became Dubai residents in just one year), just skimming through the exhibition makes you realize that the city’s property builders are hoping to house thousands more.
As one show-goer asked us on the way back from the exhibition, once the real estate boom is over and people stop flipping properties, who is going to live here?
