Sorry to have been sceptical, but having been spun all sorts of stories (and fake progress reports, staged photos etc intended to placate investors) by the developers of various projects we invested in Dubai, I have been checking the Arabtec website regularly, looking for further confirmation that this project finally, finally now has the green light.

Glad to say it has now made an appearance on their site!! http://www.arabtecuae.com/ProjectDetails.aspx?id=108

Yeah, I'm lost. What is going on on the site right now? Is piling done, or barely started?

For me it looks like a five men construction site. And sometime the made a little bit piling another time a litte bit excavation. Reminds me a litte bit to wind towers.
Want to see this construction site with many workers. Like Infinity Tower or the Ocean Heights.

There is progress, but a little.

But its better than nothing. If this craper will be realised another building will
fill the already massive skyline!!!

Dubai is another world, no words to describe it!

Hello Paolo

I met them at their sales office in Media City, not that far away from the DH site on Monday. Initially they were discussing options to swap into a unit at ocean heights, but I worked out I couldn't afford to do that.

They said that dh should be finished by 2016. We'll see...

Mark

And to think that the tower was first designed (then redesigned) and site boarded up since early 2006

I was the first to discover this when I was taking construction updates pictures in the area.
