the reason is that most of these projects actually have no demand.

I'd say that this project is at the point of no return, meaning that eventually, this building will be completed, sooner of later. All we have to do is be patient and eventually this project will be completed. Now that i think about it, the developer has too valuable a plot of land for this project to cease completely. Just means that we will have to be patient.

Marina 101 is almost topped out and still on hold, at least no activity on site. Same stands for Eurasia in Moscow, almost 70% has been finished since 3 years ago and nothing is going on. I'd rather not say this is a certainty until I see the roof

My first impression (once I actually managed to find it!) Awesome!

It is quite dark, but I think that is quite cool. Before the combined roof is done, it should look like 4 huge monoliths. should even be roughly the right proportions too (1x4x9).

Wow, I didn't realise this was going ahead... It's pretty cool to see this project already rising several floors above groundlevel, it looks like it's really going to be built. This will definitely be an original and amazing building. I seriously hope it doesn't run into difficulties down the line.

I'll also be interested to see how they build the 'roof' section. Will they build it at ground level and jack or lift it up, or build out from the tops of the towers, with bracing in the middle?

Given the history of the site, reaching a couple of floors does not mean anything.

Thats not cladding, that's a catch board (used to prevent shit from falling to the ground and killing people).
