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

Given the history of Dubai, reaching the roof level wouldn't mean much..............can anyone see this actually being finished?

Given the demand, and the current oversupply in Dubai. Not in a foreseable time. Dubai has to finally establish a market based on demand and offer, and not spec.

It seems obvious (with my admittedly limited understanding of building finance and escrow accounts etc.) that this building won't be completed. And if it is binned it will leave an awful lot more Dubai investors out of pocket, surely if the Dubai government are serious about getting out of their current situation and attracting back investment they should be looking hard at how these projects can get started, part funded, and abandoned halfway through.

Maybe you under estimating the backers of this project?

Just got to show how "good" of a job the Moderating team is doing nowdays, letting previously banned clowns to roam free and posting the same exact crap they were banned for.

Are you referring to me???

As 234 Sale said, perhaps I am underestimating the projects backers........they would have to be enormously wealthy though to fund this development. Also I believe thet developers do not use their own money to fund projects like this, and given the usual situation of stage payments by investors as work progresses, this seems to be limping along in the hope of reaching the next trigger point. If that happens and the investors have to decide whether or not to put more money in, I can't see many of them doing so, can you?

I'm just astonished that this project is still moving forward (isn't it?). It's by far my favorite project left in Dubai and one of my favorites in the world. I would love to see it completed.

Yes clearly some progress, but don't think it will be finished until 2014 at the earliest.
