It's not soil testing because it's not soil testing machinery there. They are definitely working on some foundations down there. For what purpose is the question

It is NOT soil testing, it is a proper piling work .... but it can also be shoring work, building the sheer perimeter wall alongside the waterline, to allow for excavation of the site later on.

That actually is a really good potential explanation!

All the recent boom and comeback of previously halted projects, has allot to do with the possibility of getting the rights to the EXPO 2020

So it appears the The Lagoons has been rebranded "Dubai Creek Harbour" Guess now that Emaar's involvement is confirmed, this is likely to start moving ahead fairly quickly. They've been on a roll recently!

Emaar announces joint venture with Dubai Holding

By Reuters | 9 Jun, 2013, 11.11AM

DUBAI: Emaar Properties will form a joint venture with conglomerate Dubai Holding to build a 6.5 million square metre "urban district" in the emirate, the developer said in a statement on Sunday.

The new project, Dubai Creek Harbor, will include a business district, shopping, sporting and entertainment facilities, according to the statement. Emaar said it was in the final stages of negotiations with Dubai Holding for the project.

Emaar, Dubai's largest listed developer, is part government-owned, while Dubai Holding is part of the Dubai ruler's personal business empire.

Separately, Emaar said on Saturday that it formed a joint venture with Meraas Holding to build a huge residential and commercial area near the city's downtown area.

Just like in the case of 225 West in NYC, the anticipation of the revelation of the design is driving me crazy

yeah, yet i think it might still take a long time till we get renders that actually are going to be built. it's the very beginning of a long process we are seeing now if this indeed gets build.

I hope this will finally break the Legendary mile

if they want to have the worlds tallest for some time more, like 15-20 years they really gotta do a big leap again.

any news on the Opera house plot? id love to see some fresh pictures.
