The GCC's 20 tallest towers under construction

(Residential - 300m, 984ft - 73 floors - due to be completed 2016)

Dubai Pearl is a 73-storey, 300 m (984 ft), tall residential skyscraper under construction along Al Sufouh Road in Dubai. The $6bn project consists of four mixed-use towers connected together at the base, and by a sky bridge at the top. Once completed Dubai Pearl will accommodate 9,000 residents and its commercial sector will employ 12,000 people. The project, which is being built by Habtoor Leighton Group, was originally due to complete in 2013 but has faced several delays and construction work on the site in recent months has been limited.

Yep old but what stops me is the news itself which is released on Fri, Nov 8 2013 today, which still confirms that this project is still on and going

Oh it was always going. Or should we say crawling

On a serious note that 2016 deadline doesn't sound too realistic if they won't speed up.

I really hope it will speed up, would be a pity if the project would get cancelled again

Because we, as Skyscraper fans, could care less about what the "market" needs, or doesn't need, or who's money is wasted, or not wasted. We just want to see Skyscrapers built
