"Tall buildings without spires and with flat roof look DULL and boring."

A matter of taste. A lot of scrapers look better without a spire.

^ When I say TALL, I mean 300+ meter tall.

Anyway, we don't care much about this specific building in the Dubai forum, so I don't see why we have to "fight" over it, here on the international one.

Yes, this is one of my least favourite Dubai projects. It's not bad, but it's certainly no more than Average. Come on, Dubai has dozens of better towers to offer than this .

I'm in the process of collecting images for a boom rundown thread on Dubai so we won't have about a million threads about the place. It's taking fcking ages though. It'll be ready tomorrow hopefully.

Those aren't actually the pile caps they are breaking, it is the over pour of concrete they are breaking out so they can go back in and pour the pile caps. The caps will usually be a larger diameter than the piles. They may even be square.
