He said everything in Dubai is ugly. Don`t just hear what you want.

The reason behind what he said. Jealousy maybe. Every hater expected Dubai to stop existing after the cirisis. Now they have one of the largest airports in the world and are still growing. Sucks to be wrong, doesn`t it?


The tower itself is ugly. Same opinion as the first renders popped up.

No picture updates in a while. Has Imre left Dubai to go back to Europe?

Almost half of the spire's length is scaffolding-free now.

Yeah... I'd expected a round or octogonal spire, but maybe these four spire edges each facing towards a crown triangle won't look that bad from a distance in the end.

Don't think so... some at Princess Tower are further up, I suppose.

Spire is 'meh' so far, which is bad considering I thought this to be number one tower on the tallest block design-wise. Octagonal spire would be better IMO. But let's wait for the finished product.

thanks for the update imre

i think the whole spire will turn out good its starting to look better and better now.

and hopefully the night light scheme will be much better than the unlit torch

A great night lighting scheme, would be the only saviour of that fat-arse pinnacle.
