Painting the top white suggests they will not be starting the crown at all

It happened before, and it really scares me... I hope the Dubai authorities will prohibit to leave the top blank, but this doesn't seem likely at all, right?

I'm 99% sure that this will turn out exactly like Infinity Tower. They will completely finish the cladding, and then they will build the crown. Even that Al Attar Tower was topped out for ages without any sign of a crown.

But the painting thing is almost evidence that they will leave it like that.
The exactly same thing happened to a skyscraper at SZR, too...

Infinity's top was simple. The four beams were there, the cables were added, only the hanging elements were really delayed.

Al Attar has been pretty much on hold before the crown actually started, plus they didn't paint the top of the core

If they do indeed go on with the roof feature, I will call it a miracle. That's how much hope I have now

They're just going to leave it like that?

See this is what happens when you're overambitious.

No, he could not. That building is not located in Middle East or China

And 2WTC and the Chicago Spire never getting off the ground, 3WTC being value-engineered into litte more than a bland box, and Waterview Tower being turned into a bland highrise...

...and don't get me started on all the cancellations, value-engineering and shortenings of European supertalls...

Do you have any residential highrise in your area? (it has to be, both a highrise and residential) Go out at night, around or after midnight, take a look and tell me what percentage of windows are lit
