I'm agree with you, I think it will take 2 to 4 months to see something rising, but this tower is amazing.

You are being over-optimistic. They seem to be far away from being ready.

I don't like this tower. It looks like a twinkling star (or column of stars) from far away, but close up, I'm much of a fan for sleek, smooth towers. This is a bit too messy for me.

The foundation site of the Infinity Tower was flooded after a wall holding back the Dubai Marina water breached.

Lucky escape for 100 workers
Staff Report

Dubai: Nearly 100 workers at the site of the 'tallest building with a twist' had a lucky escape yesterday as a wall holding back the Dubai Marina waters breached and flooded the foundation site.

Excavation work on the 80-floor Infinity Tower was nearing completion when there was a sharp and loud sound, said a worker.

"We then saw sand pouring down the sides," he said.

The workers were ordered to evacuate immediately, said the foreman.

The Dh700 million 80-floor tower is to have a 90 degrees twist.

According to a manager of Arabtec, the incident is under investigation.
