Nice to see construction resuming! Hopefully they finish it once and for all.

Hard to say... if they keep going on like recently, maybe 2012?

Now there's glass right under the top level towards SZR, but yet mostly missing on the other sides. Not to mention the construction of the crown and the interior work.

If they didnt start the interior work yet i think this ones gonna b finished in lets say 2013 2014 and this is still a good timeline since the developer is still al attar haha. So this ones construction could take from ground breakin to finishin ~9 years, wow.

Well at least one side of the cladding is done. Looks pretty good.

Make that more then 6 1/2 years. The developer took control over the site somewhere in Spring 2004


Still better then their 2 other potential supertalls on the other side of SZR that didn't got over the perimeter wall shoring stage and were abandoned somewhere in 2006 or 2007.

Lol, if i'd have the power over some authority which controls developments and construction in Dubai, i'd def forbid this developer to start anything again...

Yes, what a beautiful night panorama above.

Some more recent pics around Sheikh Zayed Road would be fine though, e.g. to recognize if there's progress on Al Attar Tower's crown.

I hope it will be pulled down. It is a horrible building. An insult to Dubai.

Actually I think that it is decent for Dubai, or at least, it could be if they ever finish it
