I don't think there is a corelation. All their other projects have been progressing very well, many topped out or close to do it.

Ongoing retaining wall-reinforcing work on the site. At least two cranes are involved and a considerable work force

Not quite half. More like a quarter or fifth of them (so far at least). It may not have made the most financial sense, but it sure has been fun to watch. I can't wait to visit Dubai someday.

And just wait till the next big real estate boom. I hope Dubai doubles their number of supertalls. SZR needs some filling out.

Oh it was definitely fun to watch and I appreciate their enthusiasm regarding engineering but they need to be careful at this point.

Dubai will never double their supertalls because they've already built enough for the next several decades.

Not really. Usually, it takes a few weeks since a handover of another high-rise building before it gets crowded. Come visit Dubai and you will see!
NB: I'm not talking about deserts like JV and IMPZ, they make no rule

Yeah, cause that place is somewhere in the middle of desert, thousands of miles from the nearest water body

And you can also see the water levels on site receding, as it was reported earlier on the UAE forum section

But seriously, did PT just pranked us, cause the water sipped in on site, did not come from a full breach as in the case of Infinity, so a grown fish should not be there, unless eggs found their way somehow through the sip.
