Interestingly Istanbul is also constructing a supertall Dubai Tower, Dubai must have caught many a people's imagination.

Sama Dubai shelves Dubai Towers Jeddah in wake of slowdown

The SR2bn ($534m) Dubai Towers Jeddah project has been put on hold as the developer, Sama Dubai, continues to rein in its development plans in the wake of the global economic downturn.

One source close to the project tells MEED that it is on hold indefinitely. Another source, the project's architect, UK-based RMJM, has been told by the client to cease work on the scheme.

The two-tower development was to be located on the Jeddah corniche. One tower was to be mixed-use, while the other would be a 20-storey office block. The development was set to cover 500,000 square metres and was scheduled for completion by 2011 (MEED 7:3:08).

Sama Dubai declined to comment on the situation.

The project was to be the third development using the Dubai Towers brand around the Gulf, following Dubai Towers Dubai and Dubai Towers Doha.

It is the latest setback for Sama Dubai, which was forced to review its portfolio of projects in November 2008, as the economic slowdown began to have an impact on the availability of funding.

Several of its other projects that have not yet been officially launched are also understood to be on hold. They include the Jumeirah Hills development, which is planned for the site of the existing police academy next to interchange 4 on Sheikh Zayed road in Dubai.

The status of another scheme, Falcon island in Dubai, is also unclear. The project involves building a man-made island near the Burj al-Arab hotel

The statement quoted Mashaal, saying that the UAE has been the adoption of the timetable for the implementation of the project and expected to be implemented in stages so as to complete the implementation of structural and architectural within 3 years from now.

He was surprised at what is being done by some satellite channels specialized sector economists and business news from an unidentified source said the suspension or default of some large projects without ascertaining its veracity.

And categorically denied the accuracy of the satellite channels reported one of the specialized stopped Towers "Dubai - Jeddah," and stressed that the project is part of his schedule.

He noted that the news is incorrect and that it adversely affect the overall investment climate in the Kingdom, which says that the best way.

Riyadh: Prince Abdul Aziz Bin Misha'al, chief executive officer of Al Shoula Group, has denied television channel reports about halting the company's SR7.24 billion (about Dh7.2 billion) Dubai-Jeddah Towers in Saudi Arabia.

He said the project will be implemented on schedule.

Prince Abdul Aziz, who is also deputy chairman of the board of directors of the Dubai-Jeddah Towers Project, criticised some television channels for broadcasting such stories.

"They must verify reports about halting or delaying of such big projects," he told reporters after chairing a meeting of the board of the project at the headquarters of Al Shoula Group.

According to him, the project comes in the framework of the ongoing real estate activities being witnessed in the kingdom.

Prince Abdul Aziz said that the board meeting approved the procedures for implementing the Dubai-Jeddah Towers Project on the Red Sea coast in Jeddah corniche. The 82-storey skyscraper project would be implemented on an area of 60,000 square metres.

The 400-metre high-rise would consist of commercial and residential towers.

The project is expected to be completed within three years.

too bad its on hold, if Jeddah gets the tallest building in the world it should add more of these buildings to the general skyline although Kingdom City probably will add a few more 250 to 300m skyscrapers
