btw. if they had actually used a photo from 2013 it would be even a little bit better. look at the tallest block. the towers are further along than that.

I think that those may be stressed turnbuckle members that provide structural rigidity. If that is the case then once they complete and occupy they will tighten those up.

Does anyone know something on why it's taking them so long to finish the crown? Financial problems, maintenance problems?

Look at how bent the upper "rope" is on the right-hand side.

That's exactly where the piece of cladding was installed, so it is obviously related to the subsequent removal of it.

I didn't even notice the anchors for the panel until you mentioned that...

Now the question is. Did they loosen the cable to remove that panel, or was it blown away by the wind?

Seems like you are mocking us, but I will ask just to be sure, are you serious with what you said?

Maybe he is referring to some rumor circulating in professional circles here in Dubai (or at least so someone claimed, cause it's a BS probably) that a serious design fault was discovered in the foundations and they are considering demolishing the tower

Notice he is speaking in first person so he is not referring to anything obviously
