Sweet pie, i'm updating my skyscraper video and the music didn't fit anymore. Now that the Burj Al Alam moved two spots up, the music aligns again

I suppose people are ignoring the fact that they had a row with arabtec.
In the article below fortune say they're close to finalising the contract. How can they be close when arabtec just pulled out?
I recon this will be on hold for a while as they sort this out.

The latest article said that Arabtec is out of the race already (with price being the main problem) and two other contractors remain.

This supertall is at a very good location at Business Bay. It will have a fantastic view of Burj Dubai and also the new Jeramaiah Gardens being planned.

Yes, progress is fine, it just seems like a long time because they haven't actually built up yet. By the looks of that foundation, we should see structural height in a few months, if not sooner.

Neither are the majority of the Chinese people.


Anyway, the main structure raising is one year away.
