This is a very long term project, so people will need to be extremely patient with this one. Mammoth task ahead for Nakheel to deliver NHT but I do still believe it will be built some day. Hope the ground works/piling get underway for real sometime in 2010-2011.

At least they have done a bunch of prep and some pile testing - that will help to speed things along once they start.

No ... - I meant to say I want it built now !

NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW !!!!!!!!!!

Nice closeup of the chains!!
That poor palm tree needs some water (or some love)!!!
Anyway, these will be good history shots of "BEFORE" the great construction to show our children of what it was like before the supertall was built!!!

Once we can mass produce Carbon Nanotubes then yes, we would be able to.

Also, space elevator anyone?

There is a little gap between the 1KM nakheel and that 40KM "outer space tower".

Hi Fury,

LOL So true. What I wouldn't give to see this under construction right now....

This is the one the project that has all the potential in the world to put BD in the shade! As much as I respect and admire BD for what it is, and I do, NHT will definitely eclipse it! BD just about escaped the crisis and has gone on to top out, while on the other hand NHT has literally sank into the abyss of the crisis.

Pity, but NHT WILL rise from the ashes some day and WILL put the wind up Emaar/BD BIG TIME!!!
