And 18 days later, on Thursday, everything seems to be ok with the cranes again. But except for the slab framework, I don't see a change to September, 26th.

Hm. Maybe they finally found out they twisted the wrong way around and are figuring out a way to fix this.

according to Marina rumors - the building works has stopped due to lack of payment to Arabtec and other vendors. There was some builders on site this week - but it seems like they only came to pickup tools and quickly left again. Rumors says someone has left the country with the remainder of cash.

I cannot say if the above is right or not - only the future will tell. I hope it is not! Again the above is rumors - and NOT verified in ANY way apart from visually NO BUILDING WORKS have been done for at LEAST the past 7 days.

According to a rumour I heard there are people on message boards who go around making random claims without presenting the slightest shred of evidence to back them up. I don't know if it's true or not, it's just what I heard.

I was at the marina with view of the building all day yesterday - and nothing moved. I went past with my car - and no workers and security guard say nobody is working. He would not say anything else.

I took a picture yesterday - and NOTHING has changed (viewing from Grosvenor House) - all cradles are at the same place as above pictures.

I sincerely hope that the rumours are not true. It would be a disaster to have a half finished building there for the next few years. And the building is already 3 years+ late.

So far I have heard the rumours from a bank and 2 contacts at a construction company.

So if anyone can see workers actually working on the building - please send a picture. Post a picture guys actually working there and the rumours are not true.

thanks
