Great Design! Hopefully it will take some focus off of the clocktower nearby.

Hard Rock Hotel is not involved anymore. They are opening one in Abu Dhabi and have no immediate plans for Dubai.

But of course the developer would be in negotiations with different hotel operators for the management of the hotel part of the tower. I hope they will be able to bring someone new, though there aren't many brands that aren't present. Mandarin Oriental is one that comes in mind.

The site is full of equipment and machinery, and work on the perimeter wall should start very soon

Good news. This is one of those towers that actually should have a stand-alone spot, like The Index has.

It occupies 2 plots, like no other tower on that side of the road, certainly enough space around

Yeah the space is no biggie, but for visuality.

I think, it's more important to fill the plots at DIFC. The DIFC is too 'empty'.

I agree. Dubai builds out a little too much, IMO.
It would be better for the skyline if BB, Szr, and Difc were all smaller and more condensed.
Also, I know it is know it us just wishful thinking, but I wish JLT and the marina were closer to everything else.

Except SZR, all those other areas are freeholds allowing for sales of apartments/offices, and to do that they had to be planed on empty areas where the Government owned the land. Marina is located on the closest possible such (seaside) area to the city proper.
