What are you talking about? It doesn't work like that.

I doubt that they would save money by doing that, quite the opposite. I am sure the Dubai Pearl project costs multiple times more than Al Wasl Tower does. Plus, it is very unrealistic as AltinD already mentioned above.

1- the pearl of course is from the best building design & i think no other building have similar design & the nearest one is marine bay in Singapore but pearl with 4 towers & also 300 m .. & the problem not in al wasl itself but about leaving a stunning project like the pearl

2- they can buy it easily if they have enough finance for the project

Come on, it doesn't work like that. There are so many financial and legal complications involved, allot of headaches and costs associated with even considering it that make no sense if you have the land banks in your disposal to freely build your own things from scratch.

Shame nobody is putting money into those, though. What ever happened to the rumour of Chow Tai Fook getting involved in the Dubai Pearl project? Nothing, I guess.

Back than it was said he already invested, but who knows what really happened. Maybe there are some other factors at play.

That's not how it works. That's not how anything of this works.

26 Aug ... Activity is back to this plot, there is clearly a machine on site, it looks like soil testing but they did that already so maybe they are starting with ground works, the pic is not very clear.

It's a piling rig parked next to a portacabin. Now, are they related to what's coming on this plot or related to the infrastructure work happening nearby, we don't know.

Weird that the design is published but the height isn't.
I would put too much reliance on these renders in terms of height, they are often completely off about that.
