It has a shopping mall around the base hence the huge site. I doubt the base of the tower itself has a bigger diameter then CS.

If it's not on Hold, then it's just really really behind schedule. It's official website still states it is to open in December 2010! They won't make that day by a long shot. I'd put this thread back over in Proposal. Or at least mark it as Prep.

A shame though. It's a wonderful design. It's height and proximity to the Burj Dubai will complement each other very nicely.

Today is Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice) for Muslims. It's holiday today. Probably it's the reason why there are no workers.
