I'm not that excited about the design really. It's far from the best I've seen

It's not ugly, it's just not that beautiful. Too bad a building this height has such a plain design.

I disagree. Apart from the height, what's so amazing about it?

Looks very generic to me.

Not anything special about the design really, just the height.

^ Yeah, just one of the five 300+ meter talls residencials in the same block, complemented by at least 5 other 200+ meters tall.

the tower itself is nice but the render is too small
we need a larger one with more details

the spire is not that long, fortunately
i guess it'll be around 400, not more

A building like that here would be BIG news, like covered in half the papers.

But its childsplay in Dubai.

Quite nice, not my fav. but still good.

Ugh, this makes Freedom Tower look like the SWFC. It's amazing that we have come to a time when some lackluster 110-floor buildings such as this begin to rise. I feel they could have come more correct with this design.

This tower will be sandwitched between other 300+ towers that no one can appreciate the beauty (or not) of it. Important is that the uper part that will be visible above the other towers in that aerea, has some variation on it.

Sorry, I didn't mean to sound insulting, I just think the design is a little bland. I'd like to see more variation in colours, shapes and architectural styles in Dubai. At the moment it seems like there are too many green/turquoise towers with strange tops and stripey white bits around the facade. I'm happy that Dubai is getting another supertall (110 storeys is damn impressive), but they should be producing a more 'individual' and unique design for something this size in my opinion. I think it lacks creativity. And no, I wouldn't want this built in London - it would look out of place.
