Damn, that's like Formula 1 then when the leading driver crashes in the last lap.

I believe the pour is already done and happened in several steps which would be very unusual though. But from the few updates we got, it looks like that. For example look at the photos I reposted from UAE section in post #183, where It looks like the raft is mostly poured except the upper left edge.

Maybe the developers are users of this forum and want to keep the building in the U/C section...

Decent-looking building - if it ever gets built.

It's funny, but true. Al Attar Tower started in 2006, and 8 years later, it is still u/c.
Work is obviously underway here, just at an Al Attar pace. So, in a couple more years, it might be above ground.

Nope, it started in 2004 and it was launched in 2003

Pearl is OnHold... for several months already

What took so long on Al Attar Tower was (is) the cladding and the roof top. The superstructure wasn't even that slow, actually it made good prourgress at some stages.
