guys, we talked about this a lot before, architecture studios do not always have a plot from all possible angles rendered, so they often use a city like los angeles just in the background in renders that are supposed to only show the building and not its surroundings, it's not a mistake, but on purpose.

I think there will be structural changes on the design to make it viable, like changing the floor plan to acomodate smaller but more apartments per floor, as well as a reduction on overall height. I also doubt we would see actual work resuming before early 2015.

I guess we just have to wait and see

Doesn't that take away the purpose of the tower? I mean they would have to change the name if every floor wasn't a penthouse.

Holding my breath... I don't care much about height reductions as long as the overall design remains the same.
This is my favourite in Dubai by far.

I absolutely am convinced that they won't reduce its height nor its floor plan and time will tell

I fear this design would look messed up on a smaller scale (height)... so let's hope they don't change the plans.
I was also hoping for the Spire from the original renders, but that's pretty unlikely now...

I have always been a huge fan of this building and its great style and design. If everything works out and construction begins again, I will be thrilled!

That spire adds nothing designwise.

Yes, that spire was just stupid. It looks better without it.

The spire was only added to make the building taller than the Chicago Spire

funny that both buildings ended in the on hold state forever

Altin mentioned that the height will likely be reduced, but i do not think they will reduce it that much, since they still do seem to claim they will have the tallest residential tower on the world and that would mean they would still have to keep a height above world one.

but even if it gets reduced by 200m, at least the half finished building will make place for a finished one so i am just happy it gets restarted and doesn't stay a ruin for a decade more.

Dubai's heating back up again. I'm hearing property values may rise 40% from their lows...

Already reached that. Actually some prices have increased by 2/3 compared to the lowest in 2009 - 10

I regret not buying anything a decade ago ... but I regret not buying in 2010 even more. Though the borrowing costs were very high back then.

I hope the height stays the same as it will be a great pinnacle for the Marina skyline!
