Wow I just stumbled onto this accident. Awesome.

It's interesting that the excavator got buried in muck, but the crane house isn't shown. It must have been similarly damaged but removed by divers.

Does anybody knows why they don`t close this gap in the marina boulevard walk with concrete? Why is it still open and filled with this stabilizing steel tubes? In my opinion it would be more secure for water when the close this gap with concrete? Does anybody have some infos? Does they propaply changed the foundation design?

I guess thats much easier to do when they finally pour the foundation. From the foundation they will have a massive wall to lean the stress from the marina on, they can use the foundation somehow as a "dam"... so no need now to pour an extra wall that can do that.

I must say very nice progress on the foundation. All the piles seem to be excavated and the biggest part of the piles are capped.

The Hotel is on the other side of the main road, where now is the Sailing Club, but there is another Marina facing plot just next of Infitiny that must be a tower ... and that's what should concern you, since the Hotel further away should not be a highrise or a tower.

Who knows what they will do. Based on previous trends it's likely that another tower will be built there. There's definitely one between infinity and the other towers though, that's Damac Heights.

Was thinking the same thing. The crane`s boom that was above water level dissappeared before they even started pumping water out.

Hello People, I would really like to watch this building being built but it's hard to do that when updated photos are not being posted and there is no web cam running. Come on Guys please post new photos more frequently.

Thanks
Lance

Saw the site yesterday. Very impresive work going on. At any point in time, 24*7 (I saw the site both at 2 pm and at 2 am, on 2 days), several hundred people are working. Concrete and steel work being done in full swing. Superb night view from Bar 44 (GH). The site engineers do not allow any one anywhere near. With some pep talk, I was led to see it from above but very closely but subject to the condition I take no photos. I have taken a night shot from Bar 44. I shall try and post it in the next few days.

Cayan may release the final 3 floors sometime in the next few months, I understand.

Great project!
