I feel like thats the first shot that has really showed how large this building is. It is very deceiving

I just thought of what I don't like about Dubai, theres no incline from single family to midlevel to highrise. I mean look at that last picture, looks like from single family/townhomes to what will be an 80 story tower, that does not look good to me. Also smog must be really bad there, with dust from a million and one building being built as well as desert sand, look at the air in nearly every picture of a building being built in Dubai, or is it just me?

Yes, lack of true urbanity and pollution are two of the problems that Dubai faces.

Nice to see work resume at the top. Dubai has so much under construction. It's good to see some of their supertalls actually close to being finished.

I wasn't aware of the existance of that building on the right...it looks like The Index's little brother

BTW, I noticed that they already cladded a some sections of the concrete sides. Will this still be painted, or that the final colour? In the renders it looks almost white.
