Thanks for the update. The upper half of the crown looks even more awful from that distance (and resolution), with the "ropes" appearing to be practically invisible. But the new scaffolding is a good sign and gives us hope that it will turn out much better. I have to wonder if there was a last-minute redesign.

Photos from this morning...

Some photographs taken this morning. They are cleaning the outside of building and getting ground area cleared for access. The building and area looking really good.
Handover starts around end of May.

Yeah, but Dubai Marina is finally somewhat done. Compared to 5 years ago, and ten years ago there was nearly nothing.

It's the Pentominium and it's no longer under construction, it's a nearly abandoned site.
