This project is gargantuan! Really like the design though; a hulking behemoth for a city I usually admire for its graceful smooth buildings (though of course massive all the same). I think it will be a hell of a sight when completed... If completed... Judging by the comments in this thread it seems it has been stalled for sometime, or at least progressing incredibly slow. Unless we have an insider giving us direct information, the reason for the slow pace can be guessed from a whole load of reasons; difficulty with funding, legal disputes, subcontractors going bust, design complications... Maybe I am wrong (and I haven't read all the posts here), but hopefully this will not be cancelled. It is a remarkable location opposite one of the palms, and one I would like to see realised. - G

It's a funding problem


..... Oh, and the core on one of the towers has jumped (up)

I'm predicting that the Cubs will win the World Series before this one is completed!

One floor per year, great!
How long would it take if this is true...

2014 + 73 years until its Topped out
=2087 + 19 years interior works
=2106 + 28 years for the other buildings around the Dubai pearl
=2134 + 12 years landscaping
=2146 + 21 years for other complications during the construction works
=2167

= The year 2167 is the logic year of completion.

Pearl Dubai Sells $1.9bn Assets To Hong Kong Property Group

The sale includes high-end residences and serviced apartments and two five-star hotels within the Dubai Pearl project.

Jason Chen, chairman of Chow Tai Fook Endowment, said: “We selected Dubai Pearl as our destination partner to develop Chow Tai Fook District internationally starting with Dubai, because of the vision and quality of their project offering.”

The Dubai Pearl project, 100 per cent owned by Pearl Dubai, overlooks the Palm Jumeirah Island and is an integrated mixed-use development including five star hotels, a shopping mall, offices and branded and serviced apartments and entertainment. The development is backed by a consortium of investors led by Abu Dhabi’s Al Fahim family.

Initial handover is scheduled to commence during the end of 2017. When complete, the development is expected to house approximately 9,000 people, and offer a workplace for 12,000.

It's still one tower. The name can change indeed, although I like the current.

Actually there are THREE towers. Just because they are joined at the top, doesn't make them a single one.

.... and I don't think the name will change, it is not clear that they bought the entire project, I would presume only part of it, however will see on due time

Imo it's one building. I guess you think the CCTV HQ in Beijing are also two towers because they are only joined at the top?

It is one project/tower/whatever. That's why there is one height in the title's thread and there's one name. If not what about the officess located on the last few floors? In witch "tower" they are located?

Pearl Dubai is still the developer, CTF is just a tenant.

In case ctf would be occupying 90% or more space in the building I would see nothing strange in renaming the whole complex after them. If they pay they can demand some changes But how much of the pearl is part of the deal is unknown for now.
