No. Soil testing is done, so they should be designing the foundations now

I wonder if that project with those "steel skeletons" on the right side of the last pic will ever be built.....Eyesore!
I do hope this project will go further ahead and actually build because just love the design!

There is no construction work going on. What's happening is a deep canal dug there as part of infrastructure work.

Though, in a way it might be related, if they are shifting the existing infrastructure (pipes, cables etc) away from the dedicated construction area, or if they are adding infrastructure in anticipation of this project.

Anyway, no construction-related work is ongoing on site.

As a general reminder, this is the original design:



I think we heard that they are redesigning and will restart it at some point.

The boarded plot is NOT that of these towers complex.

Guys is this a project site board on one of the two smaller plots! to be precise the northern plot! This makes or breaks this project .. let's hope they didn't change their mind about it. Add to that the noticeable activity on the southern big plot but that might be because of the bridge construction work.

Thanks stevefam for your pictures!
The boarded plot turned out to be an other project. That means that the Business Bay towers could belong to the past, but it is still possible that only parts of the podium are cancelled and not the whole development.
I hope so...
