Great Pic! I love the Rose Tower. Unfortunately the Al Attar Tower hasn't changed in months... wonder whats going on. I hope they've just been working on the interior side of things. This looks like it's on hold or something.

It's not on hold and there is progress, just a snail paced one.

Its not often that you see just the skeleton of a 342 meter tower.

I like the slenderness of this tower.

Difficult to say what it will be. The cladding can make it supreme OR ugly OR anything in between.

I am not liking what I'm seeing so far. Hope I will end up being proven wrong.

The glass reflection looks like camouflage. An impressive tower, but not one of my Dubai favorites.

The cladding is a bit strange but at least eye-catching.

Well, at least it's something different, better than to see the entire SZR in the same blue glass cladded.

It will be taller than next-door Rose Rotana when finished.
