Interesting. Is this actual information or just your guessing?

Generally, I agree. I think they will start soon. It's not like they were laying on their back doing nothing for the last month. They did finish the concrete slab, cleared the side and now I guess they are ready to move on. Maybe it was more convenient to first complete the slab before continuing with the tower.

I´d agree with YannSZ. Also for the reason that the north gate of the site been widened which IMO was just been done to handle the overlength trucks arriving on site.

Who changed the status to "on hold"?
There is nothing showing that it is on hold, every day there are some new things! They've just finished pouring the concrete for the raft of the mall! They are building accomodation buildings on the other side of the road, they seem like mounting new cranes, and all material is ready to receive the steel structure!
The just finished redoing the north entrance to accommodate huge trucs with heavy loads!

Thats right

1. They wouldn't install tower cranes if they were planning to put it on hold.
2. There is always activity on site, and the mall is integral part of the project so you can't just separate it from the tower.
3. There's lots of construction materials on site.

I think I know who did it. Our bellowed overexcited mod

Anyways my suggestion is this. Lets wait one month from the last activity on site. If there will be no action anywhere on the side then we can call it on hold. But until now the site was pretty busy, and just lately they finished all the works with the slab so very soon they either start works with the main tower or we put it on hold, but now is definitely to early since just week ago this was still a busy construction site.

On Hold = The developer has halted construction..."THIS" is not on hold!

No activity = on hold. The supertall itself had no activity at all for 2 months.

Not sure what is going on. In the small hole, there was plenty of progress anyway.

So you changed it, I thought about someone else Anyways as you can see works are continuing as always. They completed the slab so now they can start with the megacollumns.

How many status changes have there been in Wikipedia for this project over the past half year or so? Around 200 perhaps?

Hi all.

On Hold is when the developer temporarily halts construction for whatever reason. Waiting for the raft to gain enough strength before beginning to erect core walls is not on hold.

Some projects wait 6 months after pouring the raft and they are certainly not on hold. Besides, there has been activity at the site.

Wikipedia is definitely not the place to go for pertinate information IMO.


Ray.

It's weird that even mods don't know what is "on hold" and whats not. I think they need to be a little less "title changing" happy!

Anyways......Great to see steel on site! Now to watch another 600m+ giant rise from the ground
