This is one of the few Dubai buildings that I like! I really like the curve on the front, very nice!

I was thinking the exact same thing. I like it. Simple and elegant, always a nice combination.

This one is cool, but the award for the best looking tower release so far at The Business Bay HAS to go to The Business Bay Tower.

I wonder if the architect is American since it does look like a tower that would fit into an American city which is something most Dubai towers don't do

Definitely a rip-off of the 4Seasons here in Florida.

Still nice.

Agreed. They are strikingly similar, but I kind of like the Dubai tower better. I like the facade. Maybe we can switch them when no ones looking.

What does the 4-seasons in florida look like. Show us a picture, I'd bet it looks only a tiny bit like it.

You seem to be correct.


Emporis page is here - http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/bu/?id=100767.

Personally I think it bares more resenbalence to the AIG tower in Hong Kong.

i don't think the 4Seasons looks that much the same as this one here...we don't even have a proper render...
