I wonder, how much does a flat in one of those towers cost?

The last few weeks I've seen the lights on the cranes were on, and I think that wasn't the case before.

I've reduced myself to checking this thread every two weeks or so just because I want to just get it off my mind.

I feel the same. This one was my fav left project in Dubai, and it's design was/is superb, and would give the tallest block something fresh and innovative.

It would have been a cool looking building but it's notlike Dubai actually NEEDS another supertall...

I still liked the way it looked though, and insane height

Why wouldn't it be coming back, any specific reasons...

The design is amazing.

If you look a few pages back theirs lots of crummy news about the project and how they rarely see anyone on the sight. But with the news about lights being on the cranes, maybe there is hope.

Well, one day there will be demand for more space, and why starting a new building from ground level and not continuing one like this, which is already that far?

Don't be too pessimistic, you just need a lot of patience!

Sorry mate, we're just being realistic!

If you only knew a bit more of the developer's current stage ....

Bad planning, bad management, bad financing ... pretty much bad everything!

The 22 & half story scelaton should be taken down right away!

I disagree with you about that the building should be teared down. In my opinion if they don't have money to finish it they should just top it out where they are now and then finish it to this reduced height like they did with the Metlife North building in NYC

I don't think/i assume that they even don't have the money for this solution. If this piece of unfinished tower stays there, it will also reduce the surrounding towers units worth. Who wants to live next to this concrete shell, and see it out of the window?

I guess selling it to somebody is the only remaining option though maybe they might call in for help from their president like they did with Burj Khalifa (LOL, that's why it's named Khalifa) but I doubt that he would be willing to do anything more with it than just toping it out Metlife North style so I guess a full height Pentominium is now impossible for some decades
