I hope this project goes forward. It's the best design out of Dubai yet, as far as I'm concerned.

I think it was expected to slow down once piling was done. I mean the speed of construction seemed too good to be true. I hope they resume the pace soon, this is something that is needed in this area of town.

Interesting design. You can probably land a small airplane on the top.

It's Friday, the day off in Dubai, so that's why there are no people around.
Apparently, they are not much in a rush for this project.

Yeah, I don't think they work on Fridays. Let's hope on a working day they continue the pace. It has been going great lately.

It takes a long time to get those first cores poured.. But I'll wait and see!

-Edit-

I just looked at the website and I think the construction will get back on track. They made a quarterly construction update this month (http://www.dubaipearl.com/sites/defa...ary%202010.pdf) and it says that level 1 to 5 are revised and approved, so I guess we will see some rising soon!

It's also nice that they make a picture update of the construction each week, I hope they will keep doing that in the future!
