Will probably be Good speed considering how visible this is.

And that it is Emaar sitting on the Moneysack

They haven't really been sitting around with their previous projects

Yes, everything else. What other supertalls in Dubai are moving faster than this right now?
Dubai Pearl has been doing no more than a floor or two a year.
The Skyscraper has been doing foundation works for at least a couple years now.
Marina 101 has been working on nothing but cladding for a couple years now.
Al Attar Tower has been u/c since 2005, and is still working on the crown.
Damac Heights seems to be doing better than the others mentioned above, but this project is still moving faster than that.
As far as I know everything else is either on-hold or completed.

So yes, as I said, this is moving along relatively fast, especially compared to the alternatives in Dubai right now.

call it like you see it Blue Flame, time will tell, but I like the footprint and am enjoying the development pictures. It is all relative, eh?

Another observation: this is oriented along the east-west axis similar to the Index Tower, offering breathtaking views of DIFC/Shk Zd on one side, and Downtown Dubai/Burj Khal on the other side.
