The gigantic ad on 21st Century Tower (is that the right name?) really bugs me. It detracts from the simple, elegant design of the tower.

I can't stand the 21st Century tower when there is no add on it (those few days needed to clean the facade after removing the old one).

With just the blue glass tt seams so dull and boring.

This building has G + M + 70 Floors, and they are doing the 70th floor now, so there are no more floors to add, always, if the plans haven't changed.

On top of the 70th floor they have to add the curved part, and then the spire.

This tower is growing on me. Still, 21st Century Tower is my favorite SZR skyscraper.

I just have one question, do you guys have plot ratios over in Dubai? That is where the tower can only be a certain ratio of the land it's built on. In Sydney it's like 12:1 and in other places it's only 10:1 or 4:1. But yeah, just wondering because it's such a tall tower on such a small piece of land
