Ok I walked around this one today and it was very clear they were working good on it!! To my surprise it sounded like a very busy site and I saw workers installing some of the remaining cladding of the middle section of the tower! Very unexpected

The cladding on this is really ugly! It looks like the cladding on old modernist office buildings in New York City that are currently being reclad in something else.

I even had no idea it's already finished, the tower indeed looks like it has been on hold for a few years. It could almost be an icon of some lengthy financial crisis.

No it is not .. it is a lounge bar called Level 43 its on the rooftop of 4 points hotel. Although it is not an observation deck it is for me the best lounge in Dubai and u should try it if you ever visit the city.

There are lots of hotels with accessible rooftops.

Btw, the outside of the crown is okay, but the inside structure looks bad.
