Hopefully Emaar or someone else serious with big cash will take over this eventually. And get some speed going.

the construction have been quite a catastrophe so far.

they have probably spent more on renting cranes and stuff soon. Than what it would have cost to actually complete it in a reasonable speed and time

The constructions of the Pentominium (Dubai) and the Diamond Tower (Jeddah) have also been catastrophes so far. Let's hope that both of them either revive or speed up a lot!

Considering the excruciatingly slow speed it was going at when it was actually still being built, it's kind of a feat it made it as tall as it is.

What is this myth with the slow speed? It had an acceptable speed until it was a couple of storeys up, then went quite slow for a couple of months and is on hold since then.
