I'm not a big fan of the cladding...it's just blue glass. I guess they want it to be kind of transparent so that the structure remains visible from outside, just like in the renders.

Im a bit suprised at how they decided to do it. It looks different than the render. I would have thought that those external X's are the actual columns that are holding the structure!

Thanks Suzan. Excellent updates indeed.

I wonder if Burj Tower was also a steel structure, they would save so much weight and time! Those columns of Qatar Tower are huge in section area! Plus, these two towers share almost the same structure, except that Qatar Tower's crosses are larger and perhaps share more loads than the smaller steel trusses. Hmmmm... just wondering.
