Pilng done, now we are waiting for the main contractor. Dunno if this is money-related or they took some longer to award the contract... but I can't see a reason to worry.

Arabtec itself IS the main contractor, and the piling was completed months ago.

Yeah I forgot about that, right. But it doesn't change my point at all. The piling was done by some other company wasn't it? And if the piling was done so long ago why can we still see piling machinery in the pictures from July? Gabriel's recent pic is the first evidence showing the piling is complete. To me it looks like the piling contractor just finished his job and left / is still in the process of leaving the site at the moment.

The piles are exposed and the caps are broken, so certainly some progress there

Arabtec is the main contractor, but they are in financial troubles since that Abu Dhabi fund took a stake, started increasing it and practically [email protected] up the management of the company. The only good thing that came out of it was the former CEO, a Jordanian guy, that became rich by almost a billion dollar worth of shares, which he sold a big part of.


So yeah: ON HOLD!

This one might be starting soon as Arabtec is healing from all its financial troubles
Quote:
UAE builder Arabtec may break even this year, return to profit in 2017

Loss-making Dubai contractor Arabtec could break even this year and should return to profit in 2017, its chairman said on Wednesday.

The company also plans to streamline its operations: its most recent financial statement lists more than 50 subsidiaries.

"We are a construction company, we will concentrate on our core business (of) construction," said Rumaithi. "If it's not related, we're out; if it's related we're still in."

Very good, they need enough money to build it but when it's completed the money will roll back in.

We need this tower so badly! Not just because it looks beautiful, but also because it will throw a huge shadow over the neighbouring Al Attar Tower!

The clock tower was a bad idea to begin with, but not even building the clock made it twice as bad as it already was.
