so, this looks like they ARE done with the crown, i was right. (somebody correct me if im wrong). i thought the vertical portions would be integrated all they through the top. its too bad. the whole building is beautiful but they really ruined its overall look with the shitty looking crown. what a waste.

I agree, I don't like the boxing ring for the two giant alien robots (the BMUs). Either of the two crowns here and here would have been much better.

Isn't there still a chance that the crown will end up looking like in the first of your two links?

Well, first there was scaffolding all over the crown, so it looked like they were going to do that, but now I see that isn't the case, too bad. The cladding itself looks great btw.

I suppose they could use the BMUs to add the missing vertical elements to the "ropes", but I doubt it.

Surely the best tower in Dubai, after Burj Chalifa.
It is really interesting that it is "just" 306m high but its form makes it look so huge.

But I guess the Evolution tower will be better.

Evolution Tower and this tower are both great with great claddings but I think the top of Evolution Tower is better.

I love Dubai and to me Dubai Marina skyline is the best in the world, but I must admit the developers screwed the beauty of Infinity Tower by putting up that boxing ring. It looks ridiculously stupid. I'm very much disappointed as I have been following this thread for the past 2 years.

I don't understand what's so difficult about putting a few pieces of sheet metal in between the wires... Is it so hard?

Those workers must be so tired of putting up scaffolding, then taking it down, than putting it back up, than taking it down, and now putting it back up again!
