I don't like the sides of the buildings, looks to me like they used to much concrete. I've heard that it is because the building is designed to resist the desert's high temperatures..still I don't like it very much

If you could look at the pictures, that's the progress so far @ the podium.

The screens and the huge concrete ridges hide the glass, especially on side views. And the black parts are not the best choice IMO. From the render you could think that The Index would reflect the sky, but now it mostly doesn't.

The concept design of Sir Norman Foster (pictured) was converted into a build-able and feasible one by the appointed consultant Woods Bagot.

Investors file case against Dubai's Union Properties

by Jason Benham on Monday, 29 March 2010

More than 30 investors have filed a breach of contract case against Dubai developer Union Properties for the non-delivery of homes on one of its projects, a local daily reported on Monday.

The developer's Index Tower project which is under construction in the Dubai International Financial Centre, should have been completed two years ago, the suit claims, according to newspaper Emirates Business.

"The respondents' continuing failure to deliver the units and the failure of the respondent to issue SPA (sale and purchase agreement) in a timely manner is a breach of its contractual obligations," according to documents seen by the paper.

Union Properties' chairman Khalid bin Kalban told Reuters he was unaware of the legal case. "There are complaints of course but management is dealing directly with them," he said. Earlier in March, the firm said it received "negotiable" offers for its Ritz Carlton hotel in Dubai, which the debt-laden firm is hoping to sell for about AED1.5 billion ($408.5 million).

The developer has AED6.5 billion of outstanding debt, of which AED2.8 billion had been rescheduled for payment to 2011 from 2009, with the remainder maturing in the long term.

The firm's shares were off 1.9 percent at AED0.5 a share at 0716 GMT, underperforming Dubai's index which slipped 0.3 percent. (Reuters)

Am I the only one who likes the final product more than the renders? The renders looked like just another glass tower, but now it looks like an awesome and unique "Neo-Brutalist" skyscraper.

I think this tower came out perfectly. It just might be my favorite building in Dubai.
