Some news about the Hard Rock Hotel. Tasameem are the guys building it and the Hard Rock Hotel is just the operator. At least it isn't dead and they do intend to build

The total planned built-up area is 44,000 square metres.

Tasameem has not said if or when it plans to issue tender documents for the contract to build the tower, on which UK-based Atkins is the consultant.

Tasameem is also developing projects in Abu Dhabi. In April 2008, it awarded South Korea’s STX Group a $180m contract to build a residential development in the Mussafah district of the city.
