Please separate the terms ''on hold'' and ''never built''. Works are clearly on hold and it does not automatically mean that JT is a dead project. I just means that construction is temporarily not progressing.
Since this is the case, we should change the title to ''on hold'', so that we keep an honest and objective estimation of the construction status and change it back to u/c as soon as we see serious work going on.
'Cause what is happening right now on site is far from busy construction.

No pouring of anything and no activity visible - I just looked at the webcam.

As long there are still workers on the site, there is no need to think about the on hold thing. Let's wait for the end of September then, the status will be much clearer

Ok, it does look like there is still work going on - photo is from about 24 hours ago - 1030 Sunday morning - and shows a crane in operation and pouring going on (right wing at the top).

While technically a skeleton work force means the project is not on hold, but the real indicator is the visual progress of the building which we are not seeing as of late.

I don't think there were workers on the project site in the last couple of weeks or maybe in the last 30 days

In Dubai I've sometimes seen just a security guard on site with no workers, and they consider that work in progress believe it, or not.

What Fayzoon is trying to say is it is a positive sign there is now workers on the site! He is linking the absence of workers in the past as a positive sign of the present situation. Anyhow I won't be happy until it goes back to its normal speed of construction; with such a huge tower you can't rely on a slow one.
