...not sure if they can go much faster at this stage. site is busy constantly day and night!! right now at full steam. what's slowing things down maybe is the complexity with the water. they need to move sand back and forth all the time to be able to work on the next anchor column in the ground.

But that moving of the sand is not really related to the underground water, rather to preserve the accessibility to the site.

well it would make more sense to me if they just downsized the project, they may not know what they want to do yet?

Judging by the movement on the site, IMHO they should have casted slightly more then half of the foundation piles already.

Not the same as the start, start ... but there are no indications as of now, that the last known design has been changed. Maybe after the piling is completed and the main contractor moves in, we might see the new project board with the final design, hopefully unchanged.

I don't see why they would change the design (shorten its height). The location will be unbeatable!!

As one of THE prime locations/ sites in Dubai, I think they would be foolish to compromise the design. Damac: if you guys are reading, think longer term and take note…

Long Term in real estate at the moment is not an option for any developer in Dubai. But maybe with the region area instability and the hike in oil prices, Dubai will come out and back as a safe option for many new investors. Only time will tell.

This is gonna be nice if investors don't back out. It's moving pretty slowly at the speed it's going you'd think it be being built in the U.S. and not in Dubai.
