Can you say kitsch?

It will work well with the tower nearby though (also al attar?), suits Dubai, altough some esthetic continuity is needed.

Truth be told it would look awful in most cities, but not in Dubai, Dubai exotic, spectacular, and it will look rather fresh there.

I don't think there is any more floor left. The reports were that the last regular floor would be up to 272 meters, and the top of the formwork is already slightly higher then the tip of the spire of the nearby 269 meters tall 21st Century Tower.

I think the regular floors are done.

I like your new photo, you look now more convincing giving us such information!
Actually, I think am a little scared of you now, so I have to say that 290m height is absolutly right
