I have requested to be the editor for sharjah and will start to clean things up there ASAP. This should be listed as proposed and auntill we see something happen, ie a press release etc should stay that way
November 15th, 2004, 01:28 PM

this place is becoming so much work
let me know if i can be of any help
November 15th, 2004, 01:47 PM
seems like the present editor doesn't care
why is there no news about this tower? :dunno:

Who was the Editor for Sharjah ?
We always knew that Sharjah and rest of Rest of UAE would take back seat to Dubai but updates are needed . Good to see it might happen now if you can manage both !
As for news well has there been any ? June 2003 it was 6 months of starting. Here it is almsot end of 2004 and nothing
November 15th, 2004, 08:00 PM
Sharjah didn't have an editor. As a senior editor I can update stuff in Sharjah though.

Is this project happening?
February 28th, 2005, 12:58 AM
we first thought it would go through, but there have been no news about it at all
i consider this one as proposed
February 28th, 2005, 03:11 AM
So is this one dead? Looks so, as it's been announced for what 3 years now or so, unless they're really taking their time.
June 26th, 2005, 03:34 PM
whats up with this one?
it looks great...
June 26th, 2005, 08:05 PM
i found it on emporis as an approved project last year
a shame :(
June 28th, 2005, 05:58 PM
is it actually dead or just no news?
June 28th, 2005, 09:42 PM
well, i've never read anything about it and i don't know how the person who added this tower to emporis got the info about it
for me this project isn't really alive, because it hasn't been launched officially
maybe just a design proposal done for the fun of it and misinterpreted and coincidentally found by an emporis editor

a pity. this one was nice for sharjah.
