This thing is definitely on hold now. The people building this thing haven't even chosen the main contractor and once they do it'll definitely take some time for them to move onto the site and get ready. A few months of on hold I think

In the real DAMAC style, they are preparing for a looooong wait till the main contractor tender is done and they move in and mobilise the work force on the site.

2008 here we come

Since the pile caps are already cut, if Arabtec will indeed arrive on monday, it will not be long since we will start seing a visible progress in here.

Just a reminder: ARABTEC is part of the J/V that is constructing BURJ DUBAI.

all these nice towers should not be clumped together. This tower looks sooo much better in the rendering where its standing alone.
