Im quite impressed with the construction method used. It takes saftey into the highest priority--something that is rarely seen in this region! WOW.

I'm afraid this tower looks pretty tacky to me. Somehow it looks pretty meaningless. This Arabian style of designing is boring me. The pipe facade isn't the best solution for this tower. Oil -Sheikh after another is building their own tower, but for what exactly? Will they set their office there and perhaps sell some floors to a hotel? I guess it's just something every billionaire have to do there to show off.

It may sound like I don't like Dubai and it's infrastucture, but that's not right. I sure do, but these kinds of towers has nothing new to add. It just isn't enough to pack the city full of these high skyscrapers, unless there's something else too. As I've read from the newspaper, in summer time it's too hot to be outside! I've never been to Dubai, and this is all speculation, but what's the point of having nothing but buildings and roads, if there's nothing where u hang out?

They had more than better change the name, it's way too long and impossible to remember

I will answer to your concerns :P. For what is it getting built? Its a combination of need for office space and governmentally fueled projects to further raise the demand for residential and commercial space in Dubai.

The name will probably be changed once its finished or earlier, to something more decorous and meaningful. Its the owners name as of now.

That little test piece has been there for months. But with the railing and the guard up, they should be starting the real cladding imminently.

Edit: I didn't notice the two new pieces

Oh yeah you're right...I guess it kind of depends on the angle whether or not they are noticeable.
