Yes, progressing. There's an external temporary crane bringing materials down the hole, and there is movement on the ground level, so they are certanly progressing down there

This tower is the most beautiful I've ever seen, but it's a little time it's left aside. Any news??

This is the latest available picture, from February 1st. The rebar is covered in plastic sheets because moderate rain was forecasted, and fell, for the weekend (Fri - Sat)

Yes, sad but true.
But the site was also flooded a bit, luckily not nearly as bad as with it's neighbour.

That's just the result of the financial crisis. A bunch of other towers were halted or cancelled as well.

Pouring of the foundation slab must be imminent. Probably one of the next weekends...

Most probably redesigned as a 84floor, 335 meters tall named Damac Residences, including 40 floors of FENDI designed residences.

But I thought its original site was another, are you sure Damac residences isn't a different tower?

I think I prefer the new design (if its changed) to the older one. Combines the bent look with a stable look from the new renders. A friend of mine is telling me that they will pour the concrete next week.
