Time passes by quick he? Is not 6 men, it's more then 8 .... the times when you and Trances used to walk the sands, challenge the scorching sun and take the pictures.


The tower was announced in 2003 actually.

Just for comparisons sake, does anybody know how tall that building with the gold and green is?

The fact that he doesn't like it should be enough, no explanations needed.

Though I like it, simple but elegant FOR MY TASTE.

The fact he didn't explain could be determined by a personal trauma, relations with the developer for example...
The exterior is good. Though it imposes a lot of floor space wasting, it's still very cool.

The roof feature has started. There are 4 tall steel columns erected on top of the core.

There is progress on the parking structure at the back as well
