At least work has started on the top fins. They are building five towers at once, that's gotta be tough to coordinate.

5 cranes for 5 towers....shard 5 cranes 1 tower....just a recent observation of mine, had a look at these towers 10 months ago and they seemed to be alot more manpower on site, today very little, could be the hols effect but still the work isnt flying into place.

On this page some towers had three cranes...when they get this close to finishing they only need one per tower.

Progress should have been much faster, but that's Abu Dhabi afterall. Their project traditionally haven't gone up fast ... actually even those they build elsewhere in the U.A.E. aren't.

Ok now, but not even during the boom. The 40 or so stories Etisalat tower near Trade Center took 5 years, the 2 x 54 stories twins in SZR next to Rolex Tower after 6 years they have yet to open.

even with this level of activity, the place has this tranquil feel about it that makes you wonder what all the towers are really for.

Its like comparing Joburg to Pretoria, one has a big vibe ie JHB, Pretoria a svelt diplomatic city ambiance. Similar to Dubai when compared to AD.

To be frankly honest, AD lease and rent market is still in better shape than the rest of the emirates, prices hasnt droped that much in the crisis in comparison. It might not be that bad if all these units enter the market at this time!
I think the strategy of AD in construction is more like pay with no borrowing, if money there continue working, otherwise wait! safer but way much slower!

if these jumped onto the market, where are the companies and people situated now, one hole creates another.

Or maybe it will make renting options better for all companies. If you are stuck with a small office in an old building, then you will have a good chance to expand and move to a better and bigger office. your old one will be occupied by a smaller or new company which will be more than happy to have your old space. Dont forget that market is always growing and the need for new lease area is always there.
Or maybe your right, a hole will be there again!
