Such a clumsy way to crown an amazing skyscraper. Please tell me there are chances that some more work will be done on top to meke it look like it was initially intended.

Well, here's what the crown should look like back on Page 1.

From the looks of it, they are actually following the blueprint to a degree, as the three levels below the string walls look remarkably similar to the model's crown.

I don't understand why the render below (which is from the second page) was never edited into the first post of this thread by a mod. It's a lot closer to what we actually got, yet its crown still looks a million times better.

They're in the desert, they have sandstorms. The buildings need a color scheme that won't look horrible when sand gets on them. They certainly can't clean the walls every day.

Nice pics! In the last picture, it is a shame that the Burj al Fattan never panned out- it would have balanced the tallest block nicely.

For some reason it just doesn't seem like they are actually finished working on the crown..?

The corner columns look as if they will be cladded over with an extra panel

The lightning scheme will look fine I think, no need to freak out at this early stage when they're only testing.
