It definately does help anchor Dubai's skyline in reality.

For some reason it kind of reminds me of the Boston Federal Reserve Building, only much more interesting and vibrant.

That last night pic was epic...
When completed n all the exterior lights are on @ night, itll be worth 1000 words.
One of the most impessive buildings in dubai skyline, imo.

The Index is my favorite tower in Dubai, just looking at it in the skyline gives the impression of being the only sober person at a party where everyone else is tipsy...

I believe practical completion was set for end of September or October. So it may well be handed over now...

Hey 234 Sale,

How are you managing to get in on Saturday? I understood that the site is currently closed to anyone, except people who have snagging visit appointments. And I know that the snagging appointments are only occurring during weekdays 8-5 (when its most inconvenient for most people).

I am booked to go in next week.
