Project are rarely being cancelled officially. Usually they just fade away. This could also have to do with construction claims and development rights, but mostly this is because of the embarrassment involved in announcing an cancellation.

I would be really unhappy if they dont build it :-( I love the design, it's so futuristic.

I don't think this will ever be build . Though it would be cool.
But the time for such gigantic projects in dubai is over imo.

Another megalomaniac project for Dubaï...when I first saw it, it reminded me of a cactus, but I'm not carried away so far.
