you think that? To me, because the tower has shear width, it looks very short. Its more like 290m to me.

WOW what a difference BMHT to call it "very short looking"! Mhhh i think this building is way too massive, a building with white cladding instead of the beige and with a width of 60m would be better than this gigantic wall. I hope that it will loook better and will be more integrated into the skyline once other towers surround it.

But second for not long time. Emirates Park towers and the clock tower are getting there soon within the next year or little more.

Clock Tower will be only 2m higher with the spire, the roof will be lower than The Index.

I don't like this building as a supertall. The design reminds me to much of some of the projects/condos in NYC. Its different for dubai so thats good.

The "shoulders" are looking good, all the proportions are starting to make sense.

Cheers Imre.

This is looking really good. I certainly like the side view.

As they add the finishing touches up the tower it's looking better and better!!

As always, great shot Imre.

BTW, what is the proper Name of this sort of Cladding? Is it "polished concrete"?
