This guy and his colleagues must have the best view of any workplace in Fujairah.
He is one of the many workers who are constructing a 33 floor apartment tower overlooking Fujairah and he is taking time out from his work to look out over the Arabian Sea from the highest point.
The tower is sandwiched between Al Gurfa Road and the Corniche Road and you can look straight down on the Fish Roundabout near the Fujairah International Marine Club.
It looks like there will be 3 or 4 floors of parking and then the rest will be much needed apartments for Fujairah when it opens in 2011.
Going up in the cage it takes 5 minutes for the workers to reach the top of the building. The views are stupendous from every side of the tower.
It is on the beach. It is convenient for walking the corniche every morning. When you get a yacht you could tie it up at the front door. It is over the road from a fabulous new bar and restaurant. It is just a few minutes walk from Fujairah’s Fruit, Vegetable and Fish markets. What more do you want?
More pictures soon.
