Why there should be any noticable difference?

Absolutely fantastic desgin. I think it's the perfect design for JLT. It stands out in all ways. Can't wait to see it finished and cleaned.

I agree, the spire should have been less tall, only the fat part for example. It would have looked much better then.

I think the stepped design of the spire works perfectly - it echoes the stepping of the two roof levels below it, and the angular design too. It's not a traditional 'spire' but that's a good thing. A regular spire would not suit this building - the architect did a good job with this design.

Wow. That little part of Dubai has got a very impressive and dense skyline. In fact, if they were all the buildings in Dubai, it'd still be one of the best worldwide.
