Burj Khalifa will look less of a bully in the skyline now. This building was badly needed to balance the big guy

Hopefully there'll be a megatall built in Downtown

too far away to really balance out the Burj in any kind of fashion.

Awesome finally something to compete with the Burj Khalifa. 1700 feet, imagine 400 feet added to the Princess Tower (insane), this building will be 111 floors, and is going to have sky villas. Also I heard they are trying to develop Burj 2020.

7 years ago this would have been the world's tallest building.

Hard to tell. We haven't seen an update in a while and very few in general. I have absolutely no clue at what pace this is progressing (and how serious the developer is about it). Given an average constuction speed it should be completed in 2020.

You can't really have much clues from piling process, especially in this case where they use a different technique from what we are more familiar with over here.

It would be nice if somebody went down to the site to photograph it. I would but I live near Boston.

Paying out old debts by taking new loans at lower interest rates is how it functions everywhere, not to mention 20 Billion was nothing special considering the total Dubai Government debt, or the really outrageous amounts involved on real bailouts elsewhere "cough" "cough"
The money hasn't been paid back. The debt was rolled over for another 5 years last year and refinanced down to 1% interest.

The best I could do while driving:



But yes, the actual piling is ongoing.

Well, that is promising. SZR could really use something like this.

There are two excavators excavating inside the plot but I don't know if that means the piling is done, or that only the site perimeter is (or a little bit of both)

I haven't seen a single piling machine in the (few) photos we had, so it seems more likely that they still have to do it. Nonetheless, excavation means that the retaining walls are completed or very close to it. Not long anymore and this tower will go U/C

As explained earlier, this contractor uses a different technique, so it doesn't mean anything .... though I don't believe they've gone that far with piling, if started at all.

Checked from the Metro's elevated viaduct and not much had happened there on site. I saw they have cast a test pile but not much, if anything, else.

Meydan posted a new video for Entisar Tower!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJNVb9w_ciM

This is one beautiful tower! For a second I thought it was redesigned but it is just a new lower angle and this tower looks goood.

Here are some screenshots:
