Don't think. But I hope in the first Q 2007. That's realistic I think.

Nope, happens all the time in Dubai. Takes ages at ground level and then shoots up.

Nah, piling alone needs way more then 2 months, then preparing the site and piles for the raft foundation, then doing the raft foundation and then the main contractor has to come and take over the site from the piling contractor. Only then the main structure will start to rise.

I predicts the first OVERGROUND floors to appear by early next summer.

The new Downtown with Burj Dubai is 25 km away.

As for the height of the tower, within the same cluster will be one very close (380 m) and three taller: Marina 101 @412m, Princess Tower @414m and Ocean Height 2 @460m. A slightly further away (just 4 km) will be another 400+ tower.

Looks like Dubai will have more 300 Meter Towers than the rest of the World Combined.
