Would that not make a lot of noise? I think this is the main reason why wind turbines are usually far from residential areas.

It's not. You don't hear them unless you stand directly next to them.

Wind Turbines are usually placed far from residential areas because there is more wind in an open space then there is in a city where buildings block the wind, it is not because they are too noisy. This building will be 402 metres tall... Wind up there is many times stronger than what it is on regular wind turbines' height.

Maybe building world's tallest sandcastle?

No, would be earnestly a pity to see this interesting project vanish.

Let's make this positive issue and look at the positive side, they may turn this site area into a green area as a garden or something. This DIFC zone is full of buildings and itneeds some nice nature touch in the middle!
But cut the BS, this tower is a true loss for Dubai skyline!!

I remember back in 2002 or so a design for a development on Long Island called the Long Island Lighthouse, and it looked EXACTLY like the Lighthouse Tower. The project is still proposed, but the LI Lighthouse now has a different design. I'll post a render of the old tower if I can find one. It's so sad to see this building put on hold.

Pity, but we can't be all too surprised by this. A great design indeed and just perfect for Dubai. Hopefully it will still get built at some point in the future...
