it should be not long until the renders will be published, maximum 3 days. I really wonder, why they haven't done it yet?

I thought that, because DMCC said, that the renders will be published in 2014 and the year ended in 3 days when I posted it, and yea now it's 2015.

This is been dragging too long ... With them being late now, I am expecting this tower to be something spectacular or maybe the next 1000+m tallest tower ... anything less is unacceptable

Oh totally forgot about that. Well renders or not, if the building is due for 2020 they better start prep work within the year or it starts looking grim for the name of the tower.

Does anyone have recent pictures of the site? Curious to see if they are actually working or not.

With the timeline for finishing published renders or not they need to get working.

Do we know the architect at least? Maybe we could make an educated guess as to what it might look like, since architects generally have a preferred style they like to stick to.

We don't even know how tall it will be and how spire heavy of a building it will be. Sounds like a lot of guessing work to me

I have no idea how this could look like. There are so many styles...
If we knew the architect, we would know the design, because this architect would be the winner of the competition and then the design should not be a secret anymore.

I've heard the rumors in Dubai that expo2020 is canceled out of UAE and will move to other city, because of some "religious matter".
So... the End?

Take it easy, releasing renders will not speed up the construction.

Why is nothing happening?! They said 2014, and this is more than a month ago. Other articles said ''a matter of weeks'', that was 8 weeks ago!
The design must be amazing, when it will appear...otherwise I will be disappointed.

My expectations get higher and higher everyday, so hurry up!
