I think this will take longer to build than even Federation Tower in Moscow.

only 2 levels on the Tower closest to The tallblock in 1 year and a couple of months rather slow indeed. (counted up to the core)

But then again they have techincally built a 50 storey tower by now all in all. since start in 2009 april wich is 3 years and 6 months.

and i did a little chech up lets say we compare the building speed to the Etisalat tower 2 with 185m and 33 floors on sheik sayed road wich was completed inn 3.5 years uncluding exterior and interior.

so it might be that they are building this with a crew that would fit a smaller building better. and they arent taking into consideration the enormous scale of the project.

what they probably should have done isn to build the whole project in 4 phases and complete one and one tower and earn some hard cash to fund the rest and then connect them all at last.

I don't know if, but maybe they can choose between or they wait a long time until the money is there to speed the construction up or they do this slowly construction with less money. I would choose to wait.

Thats long ago many uc projects have endured or restarted. and some are even coming back from planning stage.

It isn't gone start with a bang anytime soon. While the project is still ongoing, the cash flow of the developer is tight, so it's gone keep crawling for quite some time.
