I don't think anything can look out of place in Dubai these days. Even the gaudiest tower would fit in somehow.

Dubai was not aimed to be built like New York or Chicago. Dubai wants to be the trademark skyscrapercity of 21st century. All Dubai cares about is height. Hopefully Dubai economy recovers by 100% very soon and we will see the real life Coruscant within 15 years

Good, this building is ugly even for Dubai... (Minus the Burj which is actually a beautiful building)

Finally soil testing has started on site.

While it is still something, I would have preferred they had done that long back, so we could get a start of the construction now, not the start of the designing of the foundations for the tower.

Soil testing continues on site. They started from the end of the plot, and now they are near the front, so it would not take long for that to be completed.

The tender for the 'design-and-build' package is already out and among the bidders are ARABTEC and BESIX that build Burj Khalifa in JV with Samsung Engineering, however it seams Samsung was not invited to bid for this project.

Structural Engineer are UK's BURO HAPPOLD

I heard the initial structural design was kind a strange, with steel beams and plates used mainly on the first 60 levels, and the ones above to be made of concrete, however with input from the contractor and other parties involved, that can also change.

Nothing interesting to take a picture of. Just a couple of soil-testing machines and some guys operating them. The tender for the design&build package is still ongoing I heard, and China State Construction Company might be in the lead to get it, but will see.

To my opinion Dubai is one of the most advanced and modern world, cities despite adversity for being in a desert has not been an impediment to erect their big moles

The tender for the design&build package was postponed from Aug 10th to Aug 19th apparently.

A new port-a-cabin has appeared at the site. It bears the yellow/green colour-scheme of Dutch Foundations, one of Dubai's biggest piling contractors, so maybe we are near to a start now.

So that horrible boxes-with-gaps design everyone loves is not final?

I don't think the design will be changed at all; probably just minor things that happen to every project Also, with this tower, Burj Dubai, Pentominium and Burj 2020 Dubai would have 4 towers taller than 500 meters
