As you say they cannot keep those key projects on hold for much longer.

A very bad advert for overseas investors also for the future.
actually they can keep but cant say false infos in the future because anyone can see those sites from now

Those projects have been stopped since last year but if you visited the sales centre just 2-3 months ago they still said everything is U/C but the reality is something else , all contractors left the sites removed materials , outside elevators etc.. only cranes left because its a free store area now

If you visit the sales centre (all 3 big developers are the same) you will have the next rubbish: dont worry ,construction will start soon we are just discussing about the new contractors, contract etc.. you just pay and dont worry

Some people already paid 80% and still just hole.

Very disappointed to see we're all sat at our computers.

Which means we've all missed taking pictures of the Burj in the most fabulous sunset tonight.
