I would certainly buy a condo in this massive tower in a second.. Unfortunately I can't because I am not a resident of the UAE.

“In conjunction with the Dubai Land Department, Trident is actively working on several advanced options towards restarting the construction of this project,” a person aware of the project status, told this website.

“Considering the iconic size and nature of the project, we anticipate resumption by the third quarter of 2014,” he added.

The tower, located in Dubai Marina, was scheduled for completion in 2013, but work was suspended in August 2011 following the global financial crisis and customer default.

When completed, the residential tower will have 122 floors above ground and house 172 luxury penthouses designed by Italian fashion designer Salvatore Ferragamo

I really like the design. I'm usually not a fan of supertall designs, but this one is good.

I like the curvy side on the left but the right side looks like it could some (more) work.

should the building (stump) be retitled pandemonium?

Lets all hope they resolved that combustible cladding issue before yet another one bursts into flames. That had to have been embarrassing for UAE to have that happen at least 2-3 different times for the same reason.

It's not just limited to Dubai! London (Grenfell Tower), Abu Dhabi, Jakarta, and Grozny. They all used sandwich board facade materials which consisted of an insulating foam which is flammable which is sandwiched between very thin layers of aluminum. There are 3 grades of the stuff and the towers that burned used the cheapest version with the thinnest aluminum coating. The manufacturer only recommends it to be used on applications of less than 4 or 5 stories. Thus a fire that would usually limited to the interior of one apartment broke the windows and went right up the side of the building, melting off the thin coating and causing the foam to burn. Better versions have a far thicker aluminum layer which stays in place for far longer.
