I've been to the site, it's not a vision, lot of infastructure work going on around it (freeways, massive overpasses), which is indirect evidence that this is in the works as otherwise its a whole lot of infastructure in the middle of nowhere for no reason.

On hold, okay. But if the Kuwaitis start construction soon and Dubai with a delay, so Kuwait might be the first do pass 1000m - before Dubai does!

And Dubai is selling it's real estate far below the original prices, which have fallen 40%:
