I don't get the logic. Either you are a serious company and you should be authorized to build whatever you want or you are not, and you should find another job.
If they build a 60-storey building, it's dangerous, but if it's only 49, it's fine?

Malec the glass is just a test, it will not be psychodelic-acid like that.

I'm surprised to have grown, and alot: every time I see it seamed like no change at all.

have to agree. But on the brightside...

The construction of this tower is very clean and neat.

And its completion will make Sheik Zayed an unmatched avenue full of supertalls, second only to the Marina.

The new design is a bit better than the old one. That name is a journalist's nightmare I hope they will change is to a shorter one.

Of course they will (change the name). That's just the owner's name published there (on the board) becouse no name is given to the tower yet.

The reason why we have put the full name on the thread title, is becouse there are 2 other towers under construction nearby, both over 300 meters (we believe) that are buing build by other members of the Al Attar family.
