The craziest thing about this project is half a kilometre away is a shack.....like I mean, most cities in the real world evolve but this should be something to be surprised ? dumbfounded about, not praised. Leave that to God...There are no other idols.

This building is nice and everything but its shape makes it look tiny and small, if I didnt know it is 601m I would say that barely reaches 300m

I am not trying to offend anyone

Cheers guys

The ugliest thing the 21st Century has ever produced! Glad they added some horrid green lighting to make it even more unappetizing.

Wow what a nice way of explaining the color scheme to another person.
He's not talking about your religion but the building. I, like most of the people here, have no idea why green color was used, so we're stating our opinion on the way it's applied and how it affects the tower. So, to me, it looks tacky as well, as it could be applied in a much more interesting way.

Sorry, but if someone called a polish skyscraper the ugliest building ever made in the history of humanity, I wouldn't even care about it. Structures like this are in no way a reflection of a society, country or culture.
People don't like buildings because they don't like them. It's that simple, really. No one's attacking Islam here, just stating opinion about the tower. Truth to be told, this building will age really badly, just like most of the structures in Dubai (as well as the rest of middle-east and most of Asia). It's built like it was supposed to translate the traditional architecture details into a skyscraper, but it doesn't really work that way.

I THINK YOUR COMMENT SO RACIST
The comment wasn't racist - it was a fair opinion of a building.
