I still believe the clock will be there on the top, otherwise they wont keep the render board there with no change all these months!!
If thats the case, then its not really a boring projects, its actually a new attractive landmark!!

I think it's just a brilliant idea to have a clock. If you don't know the time, you can take the elevator downstairs, walk out of the building and look up...

Or look out of your window at the reflection of the top on the glass facade of the tower opposite, on the other side of the road.

site board! its still showing the clock!!
I mean if they really modified that at least they should put what ever new!!
This is a big super tall project and its really unsual to make changes and not show it on site board info!!
I think the clock still there, unless u have something confirmed otherwise!

But again: that photo is from 04.08.2006, with construction still at underground level. The model of the clocktower was removed later from the signboard, as you can see at the bottom of this pic from June 2008, brought by malec at post #332:
.
Saeed, have you recently seen the model next to the board again? If not, changes of the top section are most likely and everything is possible IMO.

Even the rest of the board was removed last year and those tags have been placed on the tower itself.

Surely no need for a clock. People will know the time.
