Wow, I had no idea it started that long ago. That's even slower than I thought.

When did Al Attar actually start construction? Was it 2004? I was under the impression it was 2006.

Tey broke ground in 2004, and even then it went on hold for some time

The blue wannabe Chrysler crown on the building on the right is the ugliest thing I've seen in a while

It's Al Attar, what do you except? Their SZR supertall has been 11 years in the making, with a few more to come

I was expecting to see no progress at all, thus the sarcastic comment

Actually (dare I say it?) , the progress is better than I expected- I was under the impression that it went on hold awhile ago. The good news is that it is Al Attar, so even if it takes a couple more years to get up above ground level, it shouldn't be put completely on-hold.

Hmm I wonder what for. Are they going to pour the anoter half of a floor, or will they finally install proper core formworks? Pictures would be highly appreciated

most immature conversation i have seen in a while. Is that what happens, when we witness such a slow project for years. Do we lose our minds?

It has been said before in this thread:
This is just a working title and it will change during construction or when it is completed. Just like the turning tower was named Infinity Tower until one week before opening it became Cayan Tower.

The second part is not entirely correct. Infinity was actually the name of the tower not a simple working title, the developer (Cayan) put its own name on it to capitalize on the recognition and the popularity of the design by the public and industry at large.
