So, Dubai Pearl is obviously FAKE??

How many projects in Dubai actually put on-hold or cancled now?

Several?

Chad not the current Dubai Pearl (the circular on on the entrance to Palm Jumeirah) but a very old offshore project.

Giles it was confirmed to be fake that is why it disappeared from the Major projects pdf.

I can think of Al Attar tower which undergoes redesign and Dubai Pearl (not the fake one) which has changed developer and was sold, but no other towers being on hold right now?

This is interesting but I cant help but feel there are too many properties going up for sale in Dubai.

I cant wait to see the render of this though.
