There should be a subforum called "Snail's Pace Supertalls" for all of these Dubai projects that are really getting nowhere, yet people still think they are growing.

This is no mere supertall tower, It's so complex and vast in dimensions it cannot be put into the same bag with others. I'd rather have this build than most 400m+ towers, even in snail pace. Give it some time and I'm sure it'll pick up.

Its literally a huge project by all means! it has to be slower than anything else in Dubai!
Dont forget the market effect that is effecting all other projects too.
I think as long its moving, then its good. Cause it will pick up eventually

They just completed putting up a 200 meters long billboard alongside the highway. I don't like when developers splash like that.

such an interesting project, the rooms under the roof on the inside would have such weird views , with a shadow over head
i think this is one of the most sensational super tall projects right now

There's a mini version of the same new advert as you drive into the big-stack on SZR.
