Not many people actually know for a fact what's going on unless they are actually a part of the project. A lot of people can claim that they do, but nothing is proved unless an official statement it put out for the public to read about, for that reason I don't think Mahdi can be blamed. I as well also thought they were on hold. The definition "on hold" also seem broad for me, since I am new to all this skyscraper thing. Does it mean that the project was finalized on paper and didn't start? Did they stop halfway because a money issue? Construction issue? Weather? There should be place for speculation and discussions. I find it exciting to read. It's very informative for me

And how many were actually build? 15 years ago there was more or less nothing (the 1st supertall was completed). Since then the population has tripled (yes, that's right) ... the number of supertalls completed: 20 folds or smth

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?
Meh, most people living on the nearby towers are just happy the Barasti Bar is near so they can get wasted

don't know this bar, but this is a quite good argument
They drink "pentominium cocktails" till delirious, and then almost everything doesn't matter anymore

What about you just respect Gabriel and his updates? He supplies us with amazing photos on a regular basis and without asking anything in return so you should be grateful instead of moaning

Well, we do see the neighbouring Al Attar tower(?) rising, which I guess is relevant to this thread, because... uhh... we can count down until the Pentominium is overshadowed by its neighbours? That's progress, isn't it? Reverse progress, I know, but the word is appropriate still, right?

There are many things I wish for (skyscraper-wise); a spire for Ping'an, a hypertall for Dubai, the construction of Burj 2020, the old design for WTC 2... but Pentominium is on top of them all. And Chicago spire, even though it's dead.
Bumping this thread with pictures is a good thing, somehow it keeps my hope alive. The only kind of bumping I don't want to see is nonsense posts like it happens in soo many other threads.

If you take pictures of the construction site, sure why not.
