I really love very thin and tall towers. Slender and elegant. I like the cladding of this tower, too.

I was under the impression that this project was back underway? It's on hold again now?

This is the 3rd time it's on hold I think. It will get built eventually but because it's al attar they'll build a bit here and there when they feel like it

So this thread should be moved to the Proposed Supertalls?

The "Proposed" section is also for "prep", "demo", "app", and "hold". U/C forum should be for towers that are actually "under construction." This thread should be moved.

Nope, the way we do it here is if a tower got to the construction stage and then went on hold it stays here. A half built building is surely not a proposal.
If it was only in the prep stage however then it becomes on hold and stays in the proposals section.

Okay... but explain Waterview and Chicago Spire over in the Proposal section?

That's correct, both should be in this section.

no because neither are under construction.
this section is for towers under construction only. i think what malec left out was that this tower was put on hold before, so it will not be long until it resumes construction, so there is no point in moving it to the proposes, and on hold section.

I agree with you dachacon, if it's not being built, then it should stay over in Proposal. But if this, Al Attar Tower, is gonna go back u/c very soon, then there's no reason to constantly move it back and forth. However, I'm skeptical this one will go back u/c, seems its been on hold for months.

I was just mentioning Waterview and CS because there should be the same rules for all towers.

I hope this one restarts soon, I hate seeing a big skeleton next to the Rose Tower.

In that case waterview and chicago spire should be here as well. As I said before, a tower half built is certainly not a proposal

maybe we should have a "on hold" section?
