2nd tallest skyscraper without cladding on Earth? I wonder what are they waiting for. Soon to be supertall and still just a small testing glass on the bottom.

It's the name of the owner, not the tower itself. The tower as of now is still nameless.

The sign just says "AL ATTAR" (bottom left)

Also, Gold cladding to the left of the green/grey that is in the middle.
Hope it looks brighter when it is finished.

First time I have seen this building.
