At least in my case (and Imre's also) is what we have seen and/or know about this tower and others build before.

I know, and your updates are greatluy apprieciated but the arguement about on hold versus slowly under contrcution is just very silly IMO. It doesn't much matter in the scheme of things.

a lot of renders?? I only know one previous render of this tower which NHT evolved from which is the Al Burj. (far left in the photo)



1:55 in the video show the structure of the 4 sub buildings, in the middle of the whole building there's a massive hole, is that gonna be filled with a core or is the core gonna be inside all 4 towers, or no info on that out yet?

yes, one on the far left in grey colour, the tower is very old-fashioned compared to the new NHT. Its the contrast between the concrete exterior and mostly glass exterior really...

Al burj in that picture is a bit exaggerate I think, its too wide and fat.

They are not sub-buildings. The whole tower is actually formed by these 4 towers connected with skybridges. The previous desing consisted of 3 buildings connected.

Here is a comparison between my models of Nakheel Tower and the old design Al Burj.
Bottom view.

Imre, may we have some recent pics showing what IS happening on the site? I am intrigued by your reference to 'giant cable or pipe works'.

Bad news indeed. Let's hope this really is for only a year as Nakheel says.

yes, well one of the contractors emailed me a month ago to say they were suspending work ( i posted this earlier in the thread ). some people i know will be surprised if nakheel still exist in a couple of years. this is hardly a surprise though, we knew in october when jobs that were being advertised for contractors to work on construction were being canned that the project, and many others were in trouble.

we are all surprised that Nakheel is still around. DP world is a good company but needs to spin off Limitless and Nakheel and let them stand or fall on their own merits.
