I really don't get why everyone says this is so bad on the street level. First of all we don't even have the proper plans so we can't judge how the base will look like exactly. What's so bad about shops at the base anyway, isn't this actually a good thing to do to encourage street life? Also there seems to be a bit of a green area which should be welcome in business bay since it'll be very dense if all the towers get built. Also I don't see any parking lots normally associated with shopping malls.

lakegz, I'm sure (or I hope ) they have some plan for building the tower and making a profit providing enough is sold.

Not much.
I think most of the space within has been sold so it should start soon (I think the end of the year is when it's supposed to)

Nice looking tower, sort of like something from a sci-fi movie.

484 m - thats the height of the Burj Dubai at this photo.. so imagine: there will be two of these giant towers (OK- Burj dubai will be higher) so near together. And there are also three high tower near to it. (dancing)

It will be amazing

Shure it is, but we would prefer: "one gorgeous under construction tower"

Maybe you can ask the Japanese architects to try it out.
