Well, the news article said it would start construction early next year, but of course news outlets usually have a different definition of "construction" than this forum, so you're probably right.

Also New York is at 2 and has two more on prep with may turn the city to 4 as well soon, so the other cities are not far behind now. However in September Pentominium is supposed to return from the dead and than Dubai jumps up again, so will it stay alone on the first place or will the other cities climb next to it before Pentominium makes its come back? we will see
If Dubai is fully recovered, it will leave a long trail behind for other cities to catch up with.

Dubai is still the king of supertalls, I hope it can make a grand comeback

Where are the pics of the construction site?

Can we please reserve the U/C page for buildings that are actually U/C?

That's of a different site like astro said, and that does not look like U/C to me.

Do check the earlier pages of a thread before making silly comments about the progress

I felt like I got a couple of hours of free time on my hand so I photoshoped what would the marina look like when all towers are done and in place!! The whole thing took me quite a while to piece them all together plus I tried as much as I can to fix brightness and contrast! I would like to apologize in advance cz I might have done some mistakes in height and placement but I did the best I could with my Adobe Photoshop CS6! So as you can see towers I photoshoped are Pentominium, Marina 106, Dream Dubai Marina and Damac Residenze.

1024*600

1600*1000

Maybe the developer has the same problem with imagination, as 101's - before they came up with the "Dream" name?
