Seriously, WTF? Dubai is artificial and ignorant beyond comprehension.

Let's just say Dubai and urbanisation FOR people don't go hand in hand. Some of the projects are beautiful in the city, but it is definitely not built for people. It's built for cars. I would know, because I lived there for a very long time, so I have experienced it first hand. I guess, to each their own.

Can't believe this joke from 2016 is becoming true. Maybe even worse - the megatall tower will not start even after 2020.

Why are you shocked that a 660m+ office tower isnt working out in a city that has practically zero demand in commercial office space?

Just wanted to share this. Suddenly a lot of activity. Looks like they're making some sort of parking area...? Also a white crane came up next to the first tower. (28/04/2019)

OMG YES FINALLY!

It's been long enough. Note that the white crane is for the construction of the ~360m supertall, and should be updated here: https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=2077755

The parking area (large black asphalt) to the right is phase 2. It is where the megatall tower will be located, but that will not start for a looooong time to come.

Phase II? I thought it was planned like projects in China where the megatall is the very last thing that is built.

Yes the megatall will be the last to be built, since Belhasa Six's site office and parking lot is sitting on top of its location. They are starting off with the 339m supertall first. But since all 7 towers in the entire development is suppose to sit on top of a 7 storey combined podium, I wonder how are they going to build it with the fragmented phases...

Tallest tower might start anytime, location of site offices has nothing to do with it, most probably once they building the first 5 floors they will move all site offices to them and free the rest of the site.

Uptown Dubai Site - last week

Some pics of site, more on the Supertall thread, work is now continuing through the night, because of midday summer ban.

As you can see solar panels are being installed on the site car park, I wouldn't want to be the person to keep them clean!

The parts for a second (yellow) tower crane were delivered on sunday night.

Just as I imagined, now that they built that fancy car park with solar panel roofs on the megatall's location, that megatall is not starting any time soon, I'm guessing it will start in 2035...
