The excitement is all about the height and the relatively tight schedule (completing a megatall before the expo starts). Now please get back to topic.

Hard to say if your thinking of total city development. because Dubai grew ridicilously fast building about 50--- 200m+ skyscraper in 12 years. Cant really be compared to any other city. And in China many people has moved in from the country side to fuel Similar city developments and its alot more people there.

Great news. It was supposed to restart in the 3rd quarter of this year so they weren't too far off!

Any change on design or height or is it restarting with everything as it was?

The article from a few pages back says that it will still be built to full height.

I guess once the actual work on the structure resumes. First they should be busy to check the equipment, cranes, formworks and so on as they have been exposed to the rough climate for several years.

The pentominium, Marina arcade tower, Tower 106, Marina gate, Marina 101 and Damac residenze under construction in one squeezed area ... This will turn to one very choatic and busy region in Marina, which reminds me of the boom a few years back especially that 4 of those are supertalls

that and we still got 3 plots (4 with the one in front of Cayan) with no projects in the same area which I feel won't be empty for long now

Hmmmm....

I don't think you would position a crane there to restart construction. More likely a temporary crane to remove the core crane and formwork......?

The mere fact that something is happening gives us hope
And the timing almost matches the announcement from earlier this year, that they'd restart construction in Q3 2014. I agree that the erection of a crane at this spot indicates a removal of existing equipment like the climbing formwork or even the crane, but if it's just for the sake of saving renting costs they had done that 3 years ago. Because of that I'm seeing a fair chance for a restart

Btw. @BRAMBLE are you reading this? Do you know any details? Can you confirm or blast our hopes?

If they are putting the 2nd crane back up than work is about to restart indeed

Maybe the need to just REPLACE the formwork, as its been sitting idle for like 4 years, then restart

I wonder what the condition of the rebar is, as it has been exposed to salty air and desert climate for more than 3 years. Perhaps it needs special treatment or has to be cut and entirely replaced...
