I have some question:

Why are there two pointing arrows on the location map?
What does it mean the one with Arabic writting?
Did they use someone's else map and forgot to remove his notes or that marina side place is perhaps a barge for parking boats, belonging to this building's residents?

a tower with a garden ? hope it is a public park or something...
32 F is not bad, will be a good addition to marina skyline, nevertheless the tower is ugly , at least in those b/w renders.
looks like marina diamond with 32 stories , doesn't it ?
