The only source: The National, what had just one source, a mysterious spokesman. The rest was copy. Unlike a certain supertall (LF) that we know (webcam) that is on hold but the press says is U/C.

Let's hope the markets start a big rush, because now it's badly bearish.

Dow Jones down 4% and Nasdaq 6% today. This is just insane.

Me either...Imre's photos tell the story. I like the digging stage.

You bet it will take a ton of time to get above ground level, but I can wait.

me confused long time..
Construction may be delayed, but it's obviously not on hold. Who knows how aggressive the original construction schedule was.

Which begs the question: At what point do you consider a project on hold? If there's only one man on site, is it on hold or under construction?

Eh, the economies will be fine...
Either way, this tower is one of my personal favorites. I'll wait 20 years for it as long as they build it.
