It would be better if they covered the facade with some kind of other coloured plates
Actually I think it would look better if the plates had a whiter look.

Alas! to my and everyone's delight as the last few pics prove they have started painting the concrete coloured tiles and the colour looks good IMO.

Why paint over tiles?

It seems very strange that they would go to the trouble of fixing tiles which you would think would have a robust finish and then paint that a coating which has to be repainted every few years, doesn't make any sense to me!

^i concur. i think a nice buffed concrete finish is brutalist and nil maintenance.

I don't think they're cologing the tiles. I like it the way they are right now.

If keeping the rate 5days/floor they would reach floor 82-306m in 5months. That would be nice

Can someone please tell me what going on on the left side of the Index tower towards SZR? I stopped by the site to talk to someone, the security guy speaks English very little and he told me they are twin tower that will be more than 50 floors!( not the damac buildings) I looked every where but I couldnt find the building infos, and there is no render onsite either. Its being done built by arabtec.
