Dubai needed this project. By 2012, most of the supertalls u/c right now will be close to finished. There isn't much else in the pipeline now.

I kinda assumed Dubai would just keep on erecting supertall after supertall. Maybe developers will focus more on cheaper shorter towers and fill out the skyline? That wouldn't be bad for the city either I suppose.

He has said "most of" not "all" ! Pentominium, no ! Damac Height, no !

But Ahmed Abdul Rahim Al Attar, yes ! Al Yacoub Tower, yes ! Infinity tower, nearly ! 23 Marina, yes ! The Torch, yes ! Princess Tower, yes ! Elite Tower, nearly ! Marina 101, nearly !

HHR Tower, complete ! Rose Rotana Suites, completed ! The Address, completed ! The Index, completed !

No new projects !!!

It will be really boring at the end of 2012 in Dubai, except if the Financial Crisis ends.

Of course ! But they haven't moved since so much time...
Really, look at the first page of Burj Al Alam thread ! 4 years without being UC !!!!

I don't like things like they are going on... Look at China and India, new projects will be build in the few months but not in Dubai...

Sure, i didn't say they will go on, just that there are still many unfinished projects in Dubai.

This is how it is right now in Dubai. They just focused on working on the main projects (like talest block, bk), and leave everything alse halted. Maybe even half of the "shoul be uc" are now just empty holes, or not even that.

I expect so ! But when we keep in mind that China has re begun to build supertall and continue to approve new projects, like in India, we could think that are bad news for Dubai !

During the 1929 Krach and shadow's years after, the Empire State Building was built and open in 1931 (410 days of construction for 381m high). So I'm not really sure it could be good information for Dubai.

By late 2012, I'd say the Pentominium will be close to finished, and at least topped out. As well as Damac Heights (hmm... maybe). Pretty much everything else will be complete.

So I expect "On Hold" projects will be "U/C", or it will be boring here...

In Dubai ? Not really. They are "On Hold", twice.
But here we're talking about Dubai Supertalls. In this thread too.

I Expect the Financial Crisis won't be too long.
