Many people already complained but nothing has happened.

Not boxy enough for you?

I mean there are even more on the other side of the road. Boxes are ugly and don't achieve anything but make the city look like a normal/old city like NY. Too many boxes signals that the city's architects don't have any ideas or are just bored. Dubai is unique and needs unique and futuristic buildings with stunning designs.

This building needs a crown as its on a primetime location that deserves better than a tall box. If they wanted to build boxes, there is plenty of desert for that
The way to fit the most people in a building is in a box so thats why new york has so many and feels like a place people are actually working and living. I was sayin it needs just a few tall boxes and this one would be perfect to balance out the skyline so it doesnt look like its trying too hard. Those boxes you circled would never be found in a new york skyline.

Al Attar is big company here , they have many towers,buildings,shops and villas which are just for rent thats why they always have income.

They have just couple freehold , like 3 towers at the JLT and I think 2 at the Business Bay.

They will build but we dont know when.

Thank you for the explanation...
Anyway I don't mind when they will complete it, I just hope they will do and that they will build the crown - which I think is the most astounding thing in this skyscraper...

As a matter of fact, there's a condo project in my hometown that has had quite a few lawsuits thrown around between city agencies, developers, and construction companies. Went on for about the last 18 months. The city finally got sick of the weed infested concrete hole and stepped in to act as the developer just last week.

I was just wondering if Dubai was proactive in trying to get developers to finish what they start. Some municipalities just accept the unfinished projects and derelict cranes. Others force 'em to fill in the holes. Sometimes they take the projects. Just wondering how Dubai handles em.

18 months of speedy construction, 36 of slow construction, 72 months with the current speed. Should be about right.

Mmm, this seems very promising
Only 72 months

[I'm sarcastic, obviously]

yeah, I dont think the municipality will allow this building to stay like this for very long time.
I think they forced the developer to immediatly put the glass on the bottom half of the tower to make the scene easy on the eyes from SZR.
