Well, love it or hate it, The Index certainly stands out! The design is not something special, such as Burj Al Alam or Pentominium for instance, it's pretty straight forward actually, but it is quite an imposing building and one that will attract a great deal of attention IMO. It's different from your normal conventional skyscraper, and I happen to think this is what makes it special. I like it! The cladding/glass is awesome! Pretty much the same scenario with the Lighthouse Tower, although that is a much prettier building.

And also its location and orientation make The Index stand out a whole lot more!

So is Index tower on hold now? I've driven past several times and there seems to be very little activity on site. Certainly compared to the neighbouring 'Park Towers' which is a hive of activity. There are current projections for completion in Dec 09 but I suspect it will be a long time after that. Am I wrong?

Work on Park Towers: 0 - 90 meters above ground

Work on the Index: 300 - 328 meters above ground

Yes, indeed. Actually, I've always felt that the tower's close proximity with BD is a major factor for many people who are investing here. When it comes right down to it, they couldn't have picked a better spot for this tower!
