Yeah, I agree. We have not seen updates for a while. Although it is the tallest building in Dubai (topped-out or completed), it gets no attention.

The spire hasn't been completed yet (the lower part) and cladding still continues on top.

The pictures quality suggest that I was using one hand to control the steering, eyes on the road and the other hand trying to take a shot.

If you check the first pic, the camera has focused on the dirt (sand, dust) stuck on the window glass

Now that it is topped out, something just doesn't look right.
The spire looks like it was only added to increase the height.
It does not flow or add to the look of the building.
I do not mind a spire added on top of a building because it usually
completes the shape (eg. Burj Dubai, Chrysler building),
but this one does not look right.
When you have a "pole" like spire sticking out of a flat, or almost
flat roof (eg. New York Times & Bank of America buildings)
it just takes away from the beauty of the structure and looks like
they "cheated" just to get more height.

The roof is angled by more then 30 degree but I agree that the spire is taller then it should have been.

I agree, it look terribly out of place. Maybe the additional cladding at the top will make it look more in-tune?
