One of the ugliest buildings ever.
Such a pitty.

Sorry to be critical - but with so many nice neighbouring towers - it is simply a shame.

This building could only fit in two places on earth: Dubai or Las Vegas.

Just wait guys till it gets a good rub down. The thickness of dust on its cladding is very thick and takes away the brightness of its color

i hope you are right and that the crown will look done in the end. open, but an obviously completed structure. if done right this building still can be saved.

It's an eyesore, because the tower is incredibly dirty! When this tower will be cleaned, the cladding can look nice, because it's shining.
Yes, this one is not a good tower, but it can be much better than it is now.
