the financing not such a problem as thought if there is a use for a skyscraper full of penthouses, oversupply maybe in 3-4 years there will be a restart on this (nice, in my opinion) project.

The developer was a Hong Kong resident actually (I think of Indian descent) ... but yeah, he's not in UAE anymore, and he says is out to try to raise financing for the tower.

I also hope the work continues, but I would rather they merely decrease the height than change the design (should that be needed).

So how long can all of the equipment safely just sit there? I'm sure what exists of that shell has long cured by now but I always imagine there being some kind of clean up once these jobs get back underway.

I'm worried about the structure being weakened but then again I suppose how long has Waterview sat as-is? More than a year I think and yet they're planning to build with the existing building in place.

I suppose other than the moisture it is good that Dubai's weather doesn't have temperate extremes like the midwest US. No snow / freeze-thaw to wreck havoc on your roads

The Ryugyong Hotel stood for more than 20 years abandoned and it is being completed.

The Chicago Water Tower is also still standing and is likely to be shortened, the developer doesn't have any more money for this building.

Good points by both of you guys, thanks. I suppose with a little cleanup, a structure would be just fine once construction restarted. Forgot about the Ryugyong Hotel..duh, whoops Thanks.
