Sheffield Holdings' founder Abu Ali Malik Shroff said: "In my dictionary, I always say that satisfaction is very bad for your progress.
The ambition always has to be in your for you to drive forwards."
Speaking to Construction Week at the recent Cityscape Global conference earlier this month, Shroff
said that his
"first priority" was to ensure that the $355m (AED1.3bn) Marina 101 tower completes next year.
The building, which contains a 32-floor hotel that will be operated by the US-based Dream hotel brand as well as 76 floors of apartments and serviced residences that can be run for investors by the hotel brand.
It is being built by Turkish contractor TAV and was initially expected to complete in 2012.
A series of delays pushed this back to April 2014, and Shroff
said that following some redesigns after recently signing up Dream as the hotel operator this would now be pushed back to Q4 2014.
When asked if he'd be willing to build a tower as tall as Marina 101 again, Shroff
said: "Maybe higher."
"The climate is very good for investment in Dubai," said Shroff
