I've found an article which dates back from may 2013. Visibly Emaar already announced its plans a long time ago.

Great news! The Dubai map has been updated, indeed.
Here is The Tower's site location with the updated map: wikimapia.org/#lat=25.198&lon=55.355&z=19
The new map looks around 3 months old, right? My estimation is based upon the Business Bay sites condition, mostly.

Go through google earth on it can be seen an update, though the tower itself has not been updated

I guess they will keep it more or less secret until it will be topped out.

It will be at least 2x bigger (by volume) than The Address the BLVD's, but significantly less massive than the one of Burj Khalifa.

This is probably the fastest ground works in Dubai in recent memory. Mad props to the workers!

Well, even though I'm sure the foundations are complex for a tower of this scale, it's still not quite the same as a tower like Burj Khalifa. Most of the other towers are substantial in the master plan but nothing so groundbreaking that I'm sure they couldn't be engineered "quickly" in a sense.

But at the same time, they have probably already been busy digging for a year or two. We are only just now seeing the fruits of their labor so to speak. This certainly reminds me of the early days of say, 2005 when the Burj block was being built.

I'd imagine this entire development will look radically different a year from now!

This will be very scary for the workers, I hope that no one will go into a coma or something while working ..

I mean, the construction processes this much high without much floors underneath !! Oops

I know about it, that's why I said the worker might go into a coma from the height (not an accident)

Don't think height causes coma anyway.
