I was heading to Dubai airport at night yesterday, I saw apartments on some levels with lights on ... It was the first time ever I see this tower with lights on at night.

Only God knows what is going on with this crown ... comparing it to previous updates it is obvious it is changing form and it appears as if it is thickening! Add to that cladding keeps on progressing where it is noticeable the installation of new panels around the middle parts of the tower! I am happy to see them moving faster than previous year.

The following pic confirms it .... something is growing inside the crown

Welcome to a new episode of "What's wrong with it". In today's episode we compare 2 snapshot I took from a very recent youtube video (Cris Craft) in which we see the
plane moving alongside SZR from North to South.

That's Al Attar when plane is North:


And that's a pic of when the plane is more to the south compared to the upper image:


Do you see what is off with the tower? Well what's off is that whatever they are building inside of the crown shines!! First image we see some kind of metal reflecting the
sunlight which stops when plane moves south.

Now if this crown is supposed to be hollow what are they doing inside of it! Is there a new render we didn't see yet! Only time will tell us.

Check the vid for yourself and you judge!

I doubt cranes do that nor even water! If you look at previous pics taken from SZR it looks like they are installing something on the northern side of the crown's beams! What if it won't be hollow after all!

The square bottom part will be closed, only the pyramid part will be hollow (according to the renders)

PS: Not water, water tank .... which just like BMU cranes are made of metal and can be reflective. And of course they will be both placed up there.

You are a better judge in these matters anyways ... I was hoping there was some kind of design change for the crown since this one looks weirdly higher than the renders we have ... I can still dream you know

The worst thing is that it's hard to take a picture of Rose Tower without having this one on it.

AltinD that is nothing like renders, don't you think a redesign is possible of the crown. I personally didn't lose hope for this tower, it can be saved.
