All buildings drawing I see by 3 years olds have pyramid on top and whacky form windows, not this.

Seriously though, I really want this one to get going so we can see it completed. I love the design
Oh you should love this one since you said you like long time construction

I like normal speed construction yes, but this thing is setting a new world record for slowest construction ever This tower is going so slow that I think people actually forget about it. It's like the developer is constructing the tower paycheck to paycheck. It's ridiculously slow

From what I see every day, I would say there is a very slow progress

Just look at all of those cranes and concrete pouring machines, just sitting there doing very little. That must be costing an absolute fortune.

Could it be on hold? And who is the company that's funding for this building.

Currently at floor 8 means around 33 years before T/O

But the last floors are quite complicated so lets add 10 more years.

Then 10 more years for cladding and internal stuff

So, lets say completion date is 2066.

Of course, at the time it's completed. It should be demolished already because the bottom floors are too old.

That's like a dozen years before the Shimizu Mega City Pyramid could be approved

When that time comes, most major coastal cities around the World, would have been underwater for decades

On the plus side, before Dubai Pearl is claimed by the sea, residents will have a picturesque view of the crumbling ruins of the Atlantis hotel.

It doesn't look like Elephant building in Bangkok so much.
