This is NOT a dead project ... there was a press release that it is gonna resume construction by the end of last year, maybe it is delayed a bit ... anyhow if you wanna play by these rules then half of NYC and China's projects should be thrown in the bin long time ago!

Well I get why you skeptical since you live in NYC ... but its Dubai ... We do actually build what we propose, and finish what is on hold.

Now that's a fanboy statement if there ever was one.

Dubai is littered with failed, cancelled projects. Many successful ones too though I'll add.

Don't read too much into what developers say to the press. They're always trying to project strength. It goes with the territory. That article is nearly a year old. Don't hold your breath.

No matter how "dead" this project might seem, fact remains that it sits on what is arguably one of the most valuable plots of land in Dubai, tons of money has been thrown into it (and the "sunk-cost fallacy" should not be underestimated), and if it has been built according to specifications, its already-built foundations could comfortably carry a hundred-storey skyscraper. No developer is likely to undo what has already been done on the site. Some of the tower might be knocked down, and something new built on the foundations instead, but it's very unlikely that anything will happen to the site in the end other than a big skyscraper. It's just a question of time.

We will see what happens this year.
It's not only the valuable ground that's a reason why something must happen there, in one way up or the other way down...
I can imagine it's also a little disaster for all people living in lower floors in the surrounding towers. Or people who speculate to rent or buy such an apartment.
Who wants to pay a lot of money for looking at a ruin?

Dubai has dozens of buildings that went on hold for several years and a overwhelming majority of them resumed construction. Just inform yourself before you speak.

After 2012 most of the projects resumed again. When you have no clue about what you are talking about, don't write it...please.

One day this has to be build. If it will be build like planned or not is still unknown, but this 25 story ruin will not be there for ever.
A part was built already so something has to happen to the project. A plan or vision can be easily cancelled or "littered", because nothing remaining has been done. A part of the tower or actual real parts of the buildings have been done and are remaining. So this can NOT be dead!

Let's just hope that it keeps going. I sadly does not feel like it will. I just hope
OMG all of these were proposals with no ground work whatsoever done to be considered on hold similar to Pento! Can you please think before you type!

Business bay was a wasteland of on hold projects 2 years ago, now they are all resuming and progressing fast!

:
Dubai Projects Never Built

Some were just a rendering. But plenty had works done, plots dug, pilings drilled. Etc etc.

Yes, but piling is still removable and reusable. Still not comparable with a 25 story building standing there in the skyline.

Maybe you didn't know, shouldn't know or had no way of knowing but if you don't have the correct information then just don't comment on something! Many people here have a lot of insight or information about projects and most of them only make comments when they know for a fact what's going on. Speculation doesn't help anybody or anything except your post count up which is the objective here.
