After seeing that water base this structure will be amazing. It contrasts to the usual slender type buildings built in Dubai, giving it characther.

i must say its kinda ordinary looking building...maybe they will prove me wrong with a colorful facade or clading like most buildings in Dubai have...however the 3 or 4 legged concept sucks....good thing they have the presence of mind to add that waterfall....w/o it hand down would be the most lack luster building in Big D of the Desert.

WOW cheers Joobn. Top man

Will need to see a bigger area covered to see the effect of the glass.
Only just noticed they have been cladding the concrete section and are 2/3 up the current height. What colour will this cladding be as i have seen different renders?
