It's certainly not horrid; not every 400m tower is destined to be monumentally beautiful like the ESB. Dubai's general style is far superior to most of what goes up in China. SWFC aside.

If you're going to bother building a building that tall, at least give it a good design.

Good news though.

I like it and love the design. If this was not being built in dubai but in your city, i think most everyone would love it aswell, but there are alot of dubai haters in these forums

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.
NP, didnt mean to insult you either, im just saying that every has its own taste.. And of course if a similar tower would get built in London it should have diff design. I myself would be goddamn happy if even a 100m tower would be built in Budapest

yeah, the population of the world is around 6.5 billion. 6.5 billion people aren't expected to move to dubai. only about 1 - 1.5 million in the next 10 years. so there should be a good 6.449 billion left.

Looks so very ugly.
Dubai buildings are 90% crappish. Tall, but ugly.

I like the top of the tower, it is very creative designed, looks like balconies gradually coming down. It is not a bad design. Dubai has some of the best looking scrapers in the World. Keep it up!

Considering that it is a residential tower, the design is not that bad.

there's nothing appealing about the design...its just plain average. Actually I don't really like the white & green color scheme. A far cry from, say, Union Square Phase 7 in HK and the SWFC.
