No one is demolishing this.

my guess is as good as yours, but I would say it either gets continued one day or they will decrease the height by a lot and top it out and finish it that way.

So I read that work was supposed to restart in third quarter of 2014 but that clearly hasn't happened yet. I am hoping they restart within the coming months, hopefully not years.

Does anyone know if construction has actually restarted as promised?

Sorry to be a bubble-buster, but I think that if it did, news would make their way here in less than an hour. The Dubai Marina is oft-visited by local skyscraper fans, and any activity on the Pentominium site would be a huge scoop. The Dubaii members on here would flock to the thread with pictures, post in caps lock with an amazing number of exclamation points, and the dancing banana gif would fill several pages' worth of posts.

However, their constant monitoring of Dubai developments also means the reverse is true: If nothing is posted in this thread, nothing post-worthy is happening on the Pentominium site. News are posted if the status quo is changed, so if no news are posted, the status quo remains the status quo, so to speak.

TL;DR - if work starts on the tower, this thread will explode. If the thread remains unexploded, work probably hasn't started.

I think it's going to be cancelled because it's on hold for a very long time and i don't think that they want to resume construction.But I still hope.

For brevity's sake, could you title these videos "stagnation updates" instead of "construction updates" in the future if nothing is happening? Currently, this building is one of the world's most expensive bird toilets, alternately one of the ugliest lawn ornaments to ever grace a fancy neighbourhood. I wonder how debt-riddled the project is - for instance, apparently Dubai Pearl is still billions of dollars in the red compared to square one.

I know what I'm saying here is 100% unrealistic because the towers would have to be torn down and re-built from scratch for it, but they should redesign this tower and Marina 106 to be 100m taller each, but design the bottom 100-150m of each to be a big, empty atrium - because I don't think anybody will ever be interested in buying an apartment/penthouse/etc without any view there. I'm sure they could use that empty space for something, but not for residential real estate.
