It's amazing building. It seems to be up side down. But it's really impressive. What's the scheduled date of opening?

Fantastic shots there! This really should be a stunning building - really imaginative design especially!

the problem with the dubai guyz is that they think the higher the tower the more beautiful ts just look wat burj dubai did to its neighboring towers as if there isn't a skyline. take a look at this sketch.
