I wish this would go up on the plot of the dancing towersd in business bay instead here, in the nothingness and give the BB a boost. UIt would also look awesome together with the BK, I also think the cables around the plot, would look pretty cool. Sad that this is not happening.

Who is the engineer behind this project?

Is that a skydeck of some sort near the top? It's almost like the Kingdom towers.

Too bad anyone local hasn't been able to provide site updates yet, but I figure this may be similar to BK in the sense that access is difficult due to the site size. Anyone local care to chime in as to what they can see? Is there any work other than on the foundations going on with the district?

The Eiffel Tower was completed in 25.5 months. Can you imagine how much more difficult it was at that time, without CAD and 3D graphics? Nowadays, it's a walk in the park when compared to what Gustave Eiffel was challenged with.

Yeah, because building regulations and working conditions are totally comparable..

Completion of this tower by 2020 will be hard but definitely possible, same thing with the Kingdom Tower, however if the Kingdom towers construction stays at its current rate it won't be completed until 2023-2025. Does anyone here know why the Kingdom Towers construction is so slow?

Financial problems of the contractor. Its the Saudi company BinLadin-Group. After the accident with a huge crane at the main mosque in Makkah with many deaths they lost very much contracts with the Royal family.
