Because they screwed up when they were trying to appoint a general contractor and so there has been a delay while they found a replacement.

Finally! Maybe the recession isn't that bad as we thought! (I know we are still not out of the fog just yet. Helps to be optimistic though. )

No, the project started so it stays in this forum. It certainly is not a proposal.

Very sad indeed. This tower's site is fairly close to the Burj Dubai, it would really give perspective to how tall BD really is. Plus it's such a cool design. I hope work resumes sometime this year.

Real estate project in Dubai, Burj AL Alam is well on course for completion in 2012, according to director of projects for developer Fortune Group. An announcement for the main contractor for the world's tallest commercial property would be made in one and a half to two months.

Colonel Syed Muhammad Shahid, director of projects for developer Fortune Group, said: "Keeping in view the prevailing financial situation everyone knows that clients are delaying the payment of installments because of which a slow progress in all matters may be expected."

Middle East Foundations started construction work on the shoring and anchoring for the project five months ago. The 108-storey structure, which has been designed by Nikken Sikkei in the shape of a crystal flower, will be located in the Business Bay area.

Middle east foundations started construction there much longer than 5 months ago. Anyway how unexpected, every month the announcement of the main contractor is a month or two away.

That 1 or 2 months must be the time needed from when someone agrees in principles to the job till all the contractual details are sorted out and the awarding of the contract can be made public.


So in short, no one has agreed yet
