Dubai: Vision Tower

OK, this is not a 1000fter but still pretty tall. It's between 55 and 65 floors (from various sources) and in business bay. The only reason why I posted it here is because I think it's one of the best designed towers for Dubai so far. So simple, sleek and soaring.

It's very un-dubaish don't you think

Actually, the only resemblance I see is the fact that it uses glass. The overall shape bears no resemblance whatsoever. I don't even give a shit that they stole the name since I'd say the developers didn't even know a tower called Vision Tower in Brisbane existed. Also of course it looks boring. It's a model!

Vision tower in Brisbane is curved throughout (and it looks great). This tower is a tall, glass box with a curved front (which also looks great), sort of like this other dubai tower on the creek.

I think it'll be very beautiful once built

It reminds me of the four-season hotel tower in Miami.

You think a tower named vision would be visionary.

I knowing Dubai, thought this was going to be a mile high scraper, or taller at least.

Come on Dubai im disapointed.
