I agree. I would've loved this to be somewhere near the Burj Khalifa.

I really hope that whoever gets those rooms don't suffer from vertigo. Looking out a window on some ends of that building would make it look like you're suspended 1000 feet up in the air with nothing under you.

The final stage of construction of this tower has been really unbelievable. They've been working on that crown for how many long months now? What in the world are they up to up there? They've been working on something up there and I can't see what it is.

If you are saying thaat based on the last posted picture, that's just perspective. It appears taller (compared with the other ones) because it is closer to the camera .... same way the 35 floors tall in the center, looks even taller.

Why don't you buy a ticket and go see it live in real life, before spewing such nonsenses?

Why is noone allowed to have another opinion then yours? And why do you call his opinion to be nonsense? Maybe he just has another taste then you. But oh well, Altin.

If he has seen it with his own eyes, from different angles and different light conditions, and still thinks is ugly, then it's not nonsense .... otherwise, 'ugly' is way a too heavy statement to be thrown around in this case.

Nonsense is telling people they can't have an opinion about a building without seeing it in person. This board is all about discussing towers based on PICTURES. If we were to visit all towers personally then ssc would be pointless. And you have tons of pictures from different angles and light conditions. More than enough to make an opinion.

I like it and I really don't have a problem that one guy doesn't.
