Wow, finally! I'll be visiting Dubai next week and was already a bit angry that they still weren't able to finish this dumb top after months, but great to know they finally get their act together.

Thanks for the update. What a huge difference these few little pieces make. It doesn't look like a boxing ring anymore.

I love this tower! I have aquestion about the cladding. Does it looks less shiny now allready than when the first pieces where added? I mean it looks a bit dirty I think?

Took this a few days ago, doesn't look like they've added other panels since that. I guess the top's finished?

I'm not saying that this is a bad name for it but imagine a building shooting up to space. Infinity Tower would best suit that

I love the location, but the whole cluster lacks of a sophisticated concept. It's like Las Vegas. You know, without the cool stuff.
