I like the design oh it, but the green windows make it look ugly, like some building from Miami or Panama city. I'd rather prefer it would be gray. It would look more elegant that way.

I remember reading on Emporis a while back that Almas Tower and Ocean Heights were placed On Hold, it returned to U/C status. But could anyone enlighten me on what possibly happened?

Almas has had its basemnet excavated and the piling underway so technically its U/C and the fact that the contractor has been appointed.
Ocean heights has gone to tender even though the basement was dug out for the smaller 37F version of the tower. No piling underway yet.

Side view : Even if it was less than 350m it would have looked great
