We had one in the UAE section but then closed it down. In this climate with hundreds of projects in jeopardy or stopping and restarting, it made no sense to keep it open. We just returned all the projects on their respective sections and kept that thread only for towers/projects never build.

On these pics, it's about HHHR Tower and "brother Khalid"... and the latter tower is not on hold at all. ... Meanwhile, Stephen23 has posted it in the right thread, too.

But of course there's also a little cameo for (Ahmed) Al Attar Tower in the first pic.

How can it overtake anything soon when it's on hold?

Dubai's towers are really looking thin and ordinary these days.
Good tower though

I agree. It should be completed at least on the outside.

Earn some revenue by placing the largest advertisement banner in the world on each side of the building to cover it up! It hides the ugly mess that constrasts the Rose Rotana and it generates money as well.
