Of course it is based on the water thing. Summer 2010 is less than 2 years away, do you see it being finished in that time? No way. Based on it's current state and based on other towers december 2011 seems like a plausible date

That is great to see it got processed faster than expected! I was expecting that they would continue working on the foundation after it got flooded and had to start over again. Excellent job!

Small article in Gulf News this morning. Some info:

- They are trying to make up for lost time atm
- The estimated lost time because of the wall collapse is 18 months and cost was around Dh200m (€40.000.000,-)
- The reason of collapse is still unknown but they are still investigating it
- Final completion date is Dec 2011 but with the accelerated schedule it could be earlier...(I don't think so)
- This project is not affected by the global financial crisis (said by the developer)
