If they manage to complete the 4 structures, I won't fear for a moment that the roof might be gone.

Considering the drastic size of this Monolith, will the Pearl be bigger that the Abraj Al Bait building? Floor size of course. If it is, then once again Dubai will reclaim the largest building in the world.

just found this in the FAQ section on the dubaipearl website.

6. Why Dubai Pearl project has changed hands and why construction commenced and then a building was torn down?

The old plot was being developed by a group of investors who were not progressing with the development.

I hope to be alive to see this built... It seems amazing in the renders... Shame now its on hold... What is the company who´s doing this? Is it in a very deep crisis?


My heart beats for Paris
