So 82 piles in 2 months. 366 to go so that would make about 9 months...

Everywhere they do piling, but when they are done with piling, they suddenly stop and the project's on hold. I've seen it to many times in dubai.

Yeah, slow piling, well it really isn't that slow in comparison to some projects. At least by all accounts this tower is an eventuality.

That's what I thought at first, but it's a bit strange because there are no floors yet
