Towers this tall, wherever they were built, used to have high standards of design 99% of the time because they were so out of the ordinary and expensive. In Dubai and China recently it's like they have become so common that in a few cases the standard of design is no better than for an ordinary 20 storey apartment tower.
That says all.

Compared to July 1st (pic on the previous page), it has grown only 1 floor and 1 floor in 2 weeks is not much of a progress. However they might have reached the next mechanical floor, and if that's the the case it would explain the slowing down.

I personally think it is a great design . Will fit in nicely on the Sheikh Zayed Road . The designs of the buildings on the SZR are a million times better than in the heart of the Marina and Jumeirah Lake Towers , wouldn't you say?
