That's what I'd heard, that everything was ironed out and that the project was back on track.

There must be some proceeding going on in the background, the funding was given and this is not a table tennis match.

I think everyone who's following this investment has the same feeling: something's wrong.

This is the icon tower for The City it WILL get built eventually, let's all hope they have just shunted construction back a fortnight due to the public holidays this weekend and next, and it is not for a lack of money!

The funding has been secured so you have to wonder what could be wrong after all that talk.

Perhaps work is being done underground in the meantime. May be a matter of re-assigning transport, crane operators. Things like that.

Does no one on this thread listen? Though financing has been agreed, work will not resume until the developers secure some tenants. I work in the building next door and our facilities management attend regular meetings with the developers. Work will not resume for another month or so - Fact.
