Not bad actualy and quite different from Dubais standard-white-stripe-builidngs.

Looks a bit like a building from the past. Like something from the early 90s.
But not bad at all.

I also like the 2 Towers beside the building. Maybe even a bit more than this one.

Any Information on those 2 available (at least the names)?

@zwamborn, thanks for these updates of Sheikh Zayed Road projects.

Progress isn't that bad, from this top cladding could be done in January.
