I also like how it's set a bit apart from the sheikh road. Being such a tall building, it helps create the much needed depth in Dubai.

Also, the fact that The Index is at a different angle in relation to the other buildings in the area helps create this "depth."

That is what Jumeirah Gardens are for.

You're right, although this sounds funny ("where - I don't see a bathroom window" )

Perhaps dirty air due to so much construction around?

To the Index: finally topped out!. But I'm looking forward to see it entirely cladded, so that the 7 floors on top match up better with the rest.

Oh my, this thing looks tall from ground level for sure. I need to put a limit on how much I look at Burj dubai, from top of burj this building is indeed very short.

If it was Dubai-Burj Dubai, the Index would be one of the top dogs right now.

I am a bit disappointet by the result until now, on the renders we had white cladding on the concrete parts, now we have beige. I hope the finishing will change my mind........and it turns out somehow like on the renders.
