Yeah, people also tend to forget that Dubai is more than the skyscraper districts, look at that lowrise area.

Is it only me or there is a progression on the crown, specifically the part that will have cladding! And I think this tower might end up not as bad as we thought it would, the second pic gives me hope that if it cladding on the crown is done correctly we might end up with a good lookin tower!

Sorry but for me this tower remains ugly whatever they do with the crown or cladding...a chance for a good looking tower is:
To destroy this "masterpiece of architecture" and "mecca of skyscraper" ...they don't need a crane. Although i think there's only one worker left, the others are sick of 11 years building such an "beauty". And one man can't manage a cran and working on the crown at the same time
(But I'm happy there are so many awesome and good looking towers in dubai!)

That's unfortunately true. But perhaps you will see only the beauty rose tower next to it when you close one eye:-)

And a serious question: is it only a residential tower or mixed use with a hotel etc.?

If they go against original plans and put cladding on the whole crown, it can at least be as good as Al Yaqoub, which is still awful, but noticeably better.

And of course they need to start the cladding on the tower itself some time, that's definitely going to be an improvement.

No, it's going to get a nice kitschy pattern to it.

lol I thought they just the last two floors at the top of the building had to be cladded.

Do you mean these white panels shown in the renders?

The original concept was indeed 10 times better than what we got...

I find it hard to believe this tower is only 342m! Since the neighboring Rotana is 333m, But Al attar looks remarkably higher! I guess 342m is according to the old render which had a more subtle crown, now it looks like they pushed it a couple of meters higher!

If it's true, it will be an even taller eyesore
It's already way too tall in relation to its ugliness.
