I think that I'm starting to like this concrete looking facade :-) I also really like the way this building is positioned :-)

Is it parallel to anything around?

Or they build it like that to avoid certain wind flows????

The building is not parallel to anything around it, and they positioned like that to minimise the exposure to the mid-day sun.

Are these ,,commieblocks" on the left going to be demolished or not? They kinda spoil the beauty of SZR in this part...

Actually I think that they are going to be demolished at some point, isn't the whole Trade Centre area going to be changed?

Wow the Index is going to be enormous. The width is MEGA!!! I also like how it is not parallel with anything else. Is it just me, because I still think Emirates Towers are the most beautiful towers in Dubai. They just look so perfect!!!

Those commie blocks will be demolished before the end of the decade.

As for INDEX, it has risen to the 57th Floor already.
