i think it is safe to assume it is cancelled. "on hold" sounds like there was still a glimmer of hope...

Well I thought it was cancelled but a new article release by the CTBUH states that from the following on hold towers in dubai (Nakheel Tower, over a kilometer high, the Pentominium (516 meters), Burj Al Alam (510 meters) and Lighthouse Tower (432 meters)) that only Burj Al Alam and Lighthouse are officially cancelled. Pentominium is going to restart soon and Nakheel tower is considered officially still on hold and NOT cancelled!

So yes there is still a glimmer of hope

As much as I love the Kingdom Towers design, Nakheel Tower was just perfect imo, makes me die a little inside knowing it will probably never get built!

But good to see progress has started on site! I wonder how they'll drain the water away and stop it from coming back?

If Nakheel Tower was cancelled, why does the metro station next to the empty plot still have the name "Nakheel Harbour and Tower"?

Because they bought the naming rights to the station for the period of a decade or two.
