Listen, they need to figure out what "pending" means first, because that's NOT a construction label. If they don't do it now, the problem just going to come up again in another thread.

This tower is what I call 'the best of the rest', the rest being everything outside Dubai.

The location of the trailer will prevent construction of the basement levels. As long as it sits where it is, nothing can be built in that corner.

A while ago, someone told me that it is around 25% sold. Most buyers are from around the world. I am not sure if that is true.

...And I would do anything to have the opportunity to live in one of those apartments when they are built. Which they WILL be.
