This tower was "delayed", "on hold", "small progress" even in the "good old times".

No surprise here.

The detailed design of the Damac Heights project is being revised, said a senior Damac official yesterday. Meanwhile, Zetas, the enabling contractor, has demobilised from the site, the developer told Emirates Business.

"The Damac Heights development phase has been completed and we are now revisiting some detailed design work for modification and enhancements. While this work is ongoing, our enabling contractor has demobilised from site," said Niall McLoughlin, Senior Vice-President, Corporate Communications, Damac Holding. "We hope to recommence enabling works in the not too distant future."

In July 2008, Damac appointed Zetas ATS Foundation Technology as the enabling works contractor for the project in Dubai Marina.

in this economic times chances are bigger for a downsize than an increase of height. But ofcourse we all hope it will even look better than it already does now.

No, the project is still on hold, if not canceled altogether.
