No, Faraa Construction (a sister company of Faraa Properties) is the contractor building the main structure of the tower. The owner is (one of the) Al Attar (brothers)

Maybe it will turn out OK, when it's finished and cleaned...I hope so.

I actually like the cladding color, it is something different, but it does need to be cleaned up a bit. Please tell me that they are going to clad the crown- if they don't, it will ruin the whole building, imo.

If by the end you mean it will end up looking like that then No!

I was passing by this tower almost a week ago on the road that goes between Sheikh Zayed Road and DIFC boulevard, and I noticed a crane moving and I spotted some workers which means, despite how slow it is, construction still ongoing.

i have my doubts that they can finish this building by the end of the year, they havn't made much progress on the crown lately. CTBUH still has its date at 2014 though. Topped out at the end of last year already. this ending sprint really goes slow
