Dubai’s largest listed developer Emaar Properties has suspended construction of a 77-storey residential tower in the Downtown Dubai area near the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa, a spokesman said on Tuesday. “In light of the current situation, delays in operations outside of our control have impacted construction on the project,” the spokesman said in response to a Reuters query.

The spokesman, calling the stoppage a “temporary pause”, did not say when construction would resume or be completed.
