It is nowhere near the worst building at SZR Some of the smaller highrises are actually horrid, but hardly ever noticed among all the skyscrapers.

Is it a pure residential building or will it includes a hotel?

Yup, but at least these towers got a chance to be demolished one day

Serious, i like the crown, it shines like a star when reflecting the sunlight.
But there's no more progress, the cladding at the top isn't installed yet...o.k with one guy working on the whole project we can't expect fast progress
I think his name is "Al Attar"

Since we are talking about making this tower "acceptable", here's my idea: Take off the pointed top and give it a quasi-432 Park Ave sort of look.


Pic credit still Bryn Pinzgauer - edit mine.

Very interesting fix but I think it needs the negative space or emptiness that the skeleton crown gives the tower.

The cladding and color on this skyscraper is very "dense" (for the lack of a better word) it needs something to break through that intensity, and that's where the crown comes into play.

My point is actually proven in the last pic I posted about this tower, because the photograph was taken from an elevated point of view from a distance of the tower the golden thin wiring inside the crown looks almost nonexistent (because it is hidden behind the main thicker gold slabs of the crown) this way the crown looks emptier hence breaking the density of the cladding even more, making it more acceptable and easier on the eye. Just compare the following 2 pics:

Point of view almost at the same level:


taken from a lower point of view:


I hope what I said made sense to you guys
