First, wow, great pictures!
Second, what is going to be under construction next to this on the site that says "rising soon"?

Those are some of the best shots I've seen of this tower. Great Job! The stone cladded parts look fantastic.

Really? I was going more in the direction of hideous myself. It looks like a half cladded building. I don't like it much. JMHO of course.

OK... I am using two cameras:

1. Nikon D40x [with Nikkor (18-135) mm telephoto lens]: 10.2 megapixels. This one is for the close-up photos...
2. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10: 7.2 megapixels. This one is for the quick photos.

Both are great and easy to use...

Check these out:

Nikon D40x

Sony DSC-T10

one of the best towers in the world!
the stone goes very well with the glass. I really like how the glass has no apparent gaps for mechanical vents.
can't wait for the top to be finished, and for the glass to be cleaned!

The final height of Al-Hamra Tower is 414 m and they have added three more floors to be 80 floors, not 77

As it displayed today on the construction site screen...
