I hope you all like them.

This has to be the ugliest tower in Dubai. What a shame that it is next to the beautiful Rose Rotana Tower

So many people here (included me) doesn't like or even hate this tower.
I have an idea: we should make an own thread where everybody could post his or hers worst/ungliest building ever. Or his or hers "worst ten" list
Would be great fun and exciting.

It looks ugly now but I still have hope for this tower! I mean they still got cladding to finish all over the tower and crown to complete ... that without mentioning the thick layer of dirt covering its golden cladding which kills its shine! I bet if all the above were done correctly this tower will be saved!

The dense lowrise sprawl in the background is a rarely seen side of Dubai on these forums. Wish it intermingled better with the skyscraper areas.

Huh? Just because 'background' gets ignored, it doesn't mean it doesn't get posted

Is there blue cladding missing at the top of rose rotana? What about the grey parts?

The pic postet 21. november 2014.
The strange gray cladding phenomenon (lol) is already there.

Perhaps that's the reason, but it's weird they let it come to this.
Btw this is an unbelivable fast and spectaculate construction progress of AATower in only 3 month

And when it's really dirt, the window washers makes an outstanding job...

Look closely...It must be dirt. When you look at the other side of the tower, you can see, that the cladding is dirty there as well, but gets cleaner and cleaner to the left in the pic. I think this side is so dirty, because it faces to the desert, where the sand comes from.

Why they don't clean it is very strange
