Thanks. I'm 5 minutes away, so as soon as there's any action I can pop out quickly at lunch, i was right there at the site today, underneath this thing, never seen anything like it.

My neck hurt when i went to Petronas Towers, but this was ridiculous!, the design is great that even right from underneath it you can still see the spire.

Amazing

It's really neck-hurting to watch sometimes (especially from a car nearby ) but who cares with such a wonderful building!

Check the UAE section (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=377) for the list of projects that are on hold or cancelled.

Actually this one is quite new despite the fact that the last one was something like 5 years old. And it was replaced in last months.
