I actually like the cladding. But it has been off again on again for years! They just need to finish it already.

I like the cladding too, especially its color.

The back side of this building looks awful though without it's glass. I know they want the SZR side looking nice. But they really do need to get moving on the rest of the building.

How are the chances that Al Attar will actually finish this one?

You mean the wave effect on the glass panels, cause when it comes to concrete, this tower has one of the best jobs in town. The casted concrete surface is soo smooth.

Concrete works ok but just have a look the cladding when you are under the tower.

Wow... that really unsightly even for Dubai standards.
It does not look like the sketch in the opening post:

That's an old design, it was replaced with what we are seeing now years ago.

Definitely. This is a problem around the whole WDN forums. Many threads on this forum have outdated renders in the opening post, and the most recent renders are buried on page thirty-something or worse, where nobody can ever find them without browsing through page after page for two hours.
