Is this project real?

Yes. It was under construction for a while, but then their was a corruption purge and the benefactor was arrested. Who knows when or if it will be completed.

It’s like 826ft up.

Hasn’t this thing been stalled since 2018? It’s crazy how projects can be left unfinished, but like this, One Seaport, and 45 Park they will soon be finished like the Ryugyong Hotel in North Korea

That’s the benefit of building skyscrapers in the middle of nowhere, no problem if you run out of cash just abandon it I suppose. I believe it’s politically off the table right now

they actually never stopped working on the infrastructure around this thing, so presumably the plan is to finish it in some capacity eventually.
