All the buildings look much better in the old render. It seems like they lost personality in the new render.

The two adjacent towers in the old rendering were much better, and way more architecturally daring (its not just an issue of render quality, there is a clear difference between the old and new side towers)

News from June (posted by a fellow forumer)

Why Mabarak Centre? Simply because the owner of this project, Sheikh Nahayan bin Mabarak Al Nahayan, Chairman Dhabi Group, is the son of Sheikh Mabarak. He kept it after his father. So let's not criticise it

There is no glass bridge connecting Gaddafi with Mabarak Centre. The idea was proposed but was dropped later on.

The site is partially empty because they (Turner) are waiting for the main contractor to come in and ofcourse its getting wayyy too hot in lahore

They always screw it up don't they, I hope it's just a mistake they've made.

The name of this project has been officially changed to MABARAK CENTER instead of Sheikh Zayed Center.

Can a mod please update accordingly?
thanks
