Unbelievable! But it's the same thing I said when they proposed Burj Dubai, and it's UC now.

I have to disagree. I find this tower way more unique Anyway this is probably just an initial sketch of the tower.

About the design I just love it, you guys should really check out the video clip it's just fantastic !



The only similarity that I can see between the two skyscrapers is that they both have a layered effect but that's about it !
where's the video clip?

To be honest I don't think anyone can give out about this imitating burj dubai. Even if it was an exact copy you can't give out really since Dubai are already imitating a good few buildings
