OUCH!!
The Tower is one of my favorite Dubai skyscrapers- I like that delicate silver filigree on the sides, and that crown is hella cool, especially lit up at night.

As for this tower taking so long, that's an ouch too! C'mon, hurry up, the poor thing just wants to be finished.

Crown looks more huge than in the original renders. Is the 342m height figure still accurate?

It does look like it's about 9 meters taller than the Rose Tower.
