On-hold. you can see the tower cranes and the facade hasn't moved an inch since the last update

there is still the worst case scenario, an unfinished tower for years in the middle of the SZR skyline.

Waterview Tower is cancelled and topped out at its current height. Al Attar at least made it to a supertall before shutting down. If nothing else, with Al Attar, finish the cladding and call it done as a 988ft. tall supertall.

Hey, facade work has been done at the upper part of the tower, glass cladding has gone up over 10 floors, compared with May 3rd.

"So slow" sounds much better than "on hold".

That green tower with the golden bars next door looks really sexy. What's its name?

Below some merged snapshots I took from Geralds recent Dubai gigapan from Red (thanks a lot, good job!).

My point about Al Attar Tower: for a long time the parts on top appeared about the same height. I got the impression
that the taller steel frames to the right must be quite new, I've never seen them before.
Could it be possible that the work on the roof has resumed lately?

Btw. I've never noticed the curved "R" on the Rose Tower either.

More floors above the concrete?

Comparing with this construction board render pic by Imre, posted at post 190, I thought there'd be only crown and spire left to do above...
