It seems like this will really be the infinity tower the retaining wall collapse was somewhat comical, but now this is just sad...

We will see what happens.

It might be nothing, just a rumour.

It might be a hiccup and there won't be any long term problems.

Investors might not be able to pay their installments which means the cashflow is stopping. (this is the worst since if this is the reason for the stall, expect it to happen to most of the other towers as well).

since ive seen a documentation about dubai im no more sorry for dubai getting killed.
im sorry for the buildings, but thats all. what they are doing doesnt deserve success. well all you dubai fanatics hate me now, but thats just my opinion, since i live in a free country im allowed to have one.
still like the tower.

I love this tower but the plot of land that it is going to be on does seem really small... Hope there is enough room for pools, parking, gardens, and other things, haha. (:

I am sure they got it figured it out. I have seen a several really tiny buildings here in downtown Seattle has everything fit in within less than an acres of land. Anything is possible.

Great to hear that!

What I find strange is that there is a hoist next to the core instead of IN the core. Now in each floor there will be holes for the hoist, it will cost lots of time to repair that, I think. I don't know what the possibilities are to put the hoist into the core but I believe that would be a better option..

Maybe it has something to do with constructionelevators inside the core. I can imagine because of the twisting design, outside elevators are not possible. Normally the crane will go inside elevatorshafts but in this case maybe they need them for the constructionelevators. Time will tell if this is true.

Well, with hoist I ment construction elevator; there is one outside the core, not really logical I think. But indeed, maybe there are more elevators inside as well..
