Diamond of Istanbul detected as the small brother of the mighty Burj Dubai, with that triangular shape... why not? Except for the steel floorplates instead of concrete.

The Diamond of Istanbul is reported to be on hold, so I don't know when construction will resume on this tower. It needs to be completed by 2010.

Diamond on Hold

the news on a turkish newspaper today says it is on hold (link provided below)... its ridicilous for it to be held at that height, like i go past it nearly every day..bigger than those buildings surrounding it allready

bide herifler kaçak yapıomus..tabi turkiyede yeni değil bu

Like McDonalds... Istambul, I'm loving it

What a great building, the city is looking better and better everytime I look around.

Will it be the tallest building in Istambul?
