Any one have any news about this?

Although we have had news of ground breaking, can it be confirmed this is under construction?

Can someone in Abu Dhabi identify the site and provide some evidence please?

I think months ago in the UAE forum were posted news and photo of the concrete pouring for the raft foundation.
