Maybe they can celebrate the resumption of construction by giving it a real name.

Great glassy building. Can't wait when it is done! What a massive excavation down there!

I was expecting to come in this thread and find out they are filling up the hole. I'm sooo glad to hear that it is starting up again.

Well atleast it's clear that something is going on. Hopefully this will be the start of a resumption of work on the tower

damn that's an incredible render if this tower looks any thing like the render then it's gonna add a lot of class to dubai's skyline(not that dubai's skyline doesn't have class but this would help any city's skyline). The only thing I don't like is the top but it's still sexy with two handle's up top.

Yes, thats why dont be so excited about this..

Site offices mobilisation was done last year but few months ago they left the site and I have heard it will be cancelled soon .
