i think most of the published news about skyscrapers from the investors/builders side are too optimistic because they dont want to lose potential investors or buyers... untill all is lost. but there are expections of course, hope this is one... wonderful tower!
i hope you get what i mean, its like these slimy used car sellers ;-)

but since there are still machines on the site ive not lost my hope till now.
(but might aswell be a trick of the builders to make the site look busy ;-D)

Dubai’s tallest commercial property to finish by 2012

15-Mar-2009

An announcement for the main contractor for the world's tallest commercial property would be made shortly

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.

10 people on site is certainly not under construction. It will only be changed when visible progress has happened.
