By Comparing it to the following old pic it is obvious that they added a sticker on the bottom part of the site board of Delmon Scaffolding and framework! Here's their site:

I can't believe they still actually going for a supertall on this one

Why can't another developer finish this thing. I actually consider this ON-HOLD, as there is no intention of delivering the building

On hold is when construction completely halts to a full stop! We don't really care about delivery since it is not an investment forum but it is a very very very slow progress! like a floor a year if we were lucky that is

I still can't get over the name of this tower. It's like somebody decided to build a skyscraper, forgot to add a name, and everybody involved with the project just called it "the skyscraper" until that name found its way into a press release. At which point they all said "eh, good enough" and decided to keep it that way.

It's like starting a new city in SimCity, then forgetting to change the name from "New City". And then stick with that name. I'm almost surprised that the project manager isn't listed as "Default".

As users from Dubai tell us, that's not the actual name, but yeah, when they finally do release an official name people will be like "why the name change?" because they've known it as "The Skyscraper" for the 80 years it was under construction.

If you're in bad mood, or even depressed, come to the "The Skyscraper" thread! It's rediculous and ludicrous beyond good and evil
Btw and to be serious, how the f..c is it possible to build so slow??? Wait, i call guiness

Hahaha well its a new investment opportunity where you invest to benefit your great grandchildren's children!

But now seriously talking, I believe this will speed up soon .. al attar is doing all it can to revamp itself with a new name and if they wanna do it right this time they will move things along and get done with their projects .. or at least that's what I am hoping to happen

Dubai really wants to have every world record that is skyscraper related, so why not the longest construction phase.

Then they better bring a developer to Pyongyang to complete Ryugyong Hotel, then wait for three decades before doing anything more to this...

Even by the most generous definition of a skyskraper, which would involve the Pyramids in Giza, that tower has got to take the cake. How long did it take to build the pyramids, again? Ryugyong Hotel is soon entering its fourth decade under construction...

How do we define "construction period"? Because Ryugyong Hotel has completely on-hold for 90% of the time. And then there is this church in Barcelona, which was started in the 19th century (?) and is still not completed
