Nice top, but the tower looks rather thin.

Fabulous design, perhaps rather thin though...

yep it's official! Dubai is only doing this in a try-hard attempt to steal the claim from other cities for the biggest, tallest and longest of everything. The truth is, Dubai will never become a world city like New York or London. Just a city in the middle of nowhere that 95% of the world population hasn't even heard about.

Old-fashioned futuristic design I just do not like at all.

I think you would be wrong to say 95% of the world has not heard of it. I do not think there are many people in India, Paksistan, Bangladesh, the arab countries, northern african countries who would not have heard of dubai.
Quite a number of people in the far eastern countries too are familiar with dubai. It is only europe and the americas and australia that people are not familiar with dubai. How much % of the world population is that? I guess it is a little higher than 25%. The whole western world and the latin american countries make up just 1/4th the worlds population. How is that as food for thought?
