But why has every newspaper and website confirmed construction is on hold for one year?

arabian business, gulf business, the national, gulf news, Kaleej Times RERA, Nakheel spokesmen? - does not make sense - its not rumors anymore - its been confirmed that foundations wont begin for 1 year???

me confused long time..

Great update Imre. You are the most reliable source for the status of the projects in Dubai. An update from time to time tell's more than a thousand words.

TY Imre for the updates.

Every time I come on SSC, I'm worried about to see the tower "on hold".

I'm so confused, I was so so so sure that this tower was on hold but I guess if this is U/C then I love it!!!

Is that mountain of soil in the photo digged out in one day or what? I'll be interested in seeing bird eye view of the construction site at the moment, there should be a visible hole there...

You really can't believe everything you read or hear on the news. There have been many press releases that were faulty in the news business and it appears this might just be one of them.

Thanks, Imre for the photo update. If it ever does go on hold, I am sure we'll SEE it thanks to you. Thanks also to the mods for not knee-jerking and changing the status of this fantastic project!

Hey, Imre - I like pics of holes! Please to post more pics of holes, por favor? Especially of the hole of the Nakheel Harbour Tower construction site.

Perhaps Nakheel will try to outdo the Chicago Hole...

I don't want to ruin this lads, but even if it won't go on hold, it still won't rise above ground for at least 2-3 years
