It's a shame if it is on hold as it is quite impressive, has a certain Petronas air to it. But I guess this is the inevitability with large projects at this current time when you consider the economic situation.

If you want a good skyscraper you gotta start with a good rope, everybody knows that!

Right... but this tool can be terribly misused, too. By a frustrated investor as one-way exit. Or even worse, akin to the Nakheel Tower teddy chain incident .

You're right, the top part of the rope looks an awful lot like a teddy noose!
