That it is approved doesn't directly mean it is under construction.
They have to hurry since it has to be opened in two years.

Such a nice sign to see a new supertall preping for construction in Dubai, as opposed to just revived older ones.

Yeah, there are still a lot of empty plots around BK. This will really help fill in the area. Hopefully more will come.
