Looks like this project may be canceled due to financial crisis.

Yeah, lets cancel it and demolish it... My god you are really dumb, tell me why would you cancel something that is 99% complete?

Please talk no bullshit in here because of the recent economic developments.

Btw, for all photographers! Because of you we can all enjoy all beautiful developments in Dubai and see that there are enough positive things happening these days! For everyone who enjoy the construction of megastructures like BD and like to know everything about innovative construction methods you are really important for this forum! I will definately visit Dubai again in the future to see it with my own eyes!

No, it will stay empty.
A memorial for the 10 years when Dubaï went out middle-age before the big crash. Building a house on the sand wasn't very cleaver.
Thanks for purchasing A380 with our own money.

Even if many projcts on the Dubai real estate market could be "built on sand", BD won't be among them, I think. This icon is such a top-adress that's known all over the world and will be a sight for every Dubai visitor. A major difference to many Dubai projects: the surroundings are harmonized nicely with this single tower in the center. And it is mixed use, so the Rose Rotana way (a finished building kept empty for a long time) is very unlikely.

Dubai Government intervention to ensure commercial success: Shaikh Ahmad

Dubai: Dubai Government on Thursday night said, its latest intervention in restructuring is aimed at ensuring "long term commercial success" of Dubai World - one of the UAE's largest holding companies that includes DP World - one of the world's largest port operator and Nakheel - arguably the largest property developer in the UAE.

“We want to ensure resources are deployed in the full knowledge that they are used to enhance the businesses of the Dubai World Group, build on the restructuring that has already been taking place and ensure long term commercial success," Shaikh Ahmad Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline and Group and Chairman of Dubai Government's Supreme Fiscal Committee said in a statement issued on Thursday.

Further information will be made available early next week, he said.

Dubai Government on Wednesday announced that it will restructure Dubai World, which has sought an extension for the immediate repayment of liabilities to the tune of $3.52 billion maturing on December 14, till May 30, 2010.

“Our intervention in Dubai World was carefully planned and reflects its specific financial position. The Government is spearheading the restructuring of this commercial operation in the full knowledge of how the markets would react," he said.

"Like most global cities, Dubai has experienced its share of economic and social challenges in this global downturn. No market is immune from economic issues. This is a sensible business decision."

Concerning the global market reaction in Europe and other parts of the world, which some analysts linked to the announcement to restructure Dubai World, Shaikh Ahmad said, "We understand the concerns of the market and the creditors in particular. However we have had to intervene because of the need to take decisive action to address its particular debt burden."

He pointed out that the unprecedented growth, in Dubai and across the UAE, over the past decade has helped lay the foundation for what is now a broad-based sustainable economy beyond just natural resources.

“The economic fundamentals, such as our highly developed infrastructure, strong transport and communications hub and regional financial centre will ensure Dubai remains an attractive regional market," he added.

When crisis emerges, markets "experts" usually look out for someone to blame on their own mistakes.
