Looks like that race with Shanghai Tower has been lost...
This is really sad. I really liked this one.

I believe it's currently about 25% but that's not relevant to how long this project will be on hold.

Wait a second, doesn't vacancy rate refers to how much of the available space is occupied?

What a bollocks, do you really believe that 75% of residential and commercial space in town is empty?

BTW, the construction is on hold but there are 30 levels build already. It certainly isn't a proposal, so why here?

That a part of it has already been built does not matter. Chicago's Waterview Tower is in the "proposed" section, too. Here's where all projects that are not currently under construction go.

Yeah but I think that there should be a subforum for on hold, never built and canceled projects too. Only proposed, approved or prepared projects should be over here

And btw, Burj Khalifa shouldn't be in the construction subforum either

The vacancy rate refers to how much of the space is vacant. So it means that 75% are occupied.

A guest on Dubai Eye last week claimed 25% of residential is currently vacant.

That is a 25% vacancy rate but as that's bollox perhaps you can explain better smart arse???

Also that a part has been built matters even less when it is apparaent that it doesn't really stack up as per the original design. Only half the units have been sold and they have all been sold to one buyer.

So it's more logical to keep it in section for under construction towers ?

It's more logical to create a new section for on hold canceled and visionary projects

Then the name of the sub-section should be changed.

IMO I see no valid point in creating a completely new sub-forum just for the sake of a few cancelled/on hold projects who are considered "extra special" by some members.

Perhaps the mods could just add a description for the "Proposed section" to "Also includes projects on hold and cancelled projects".

Yes, that would be a more sane approach.
