Behold The Leaning Tower of Dubai !

It looks like it's ready to fall over.

great to see it from the other side too!

I like the part of the podium that is taller than the rest, should look stunning once done.

Guess they haven't finished sealing the basement levels. It's probably mainly ground water that is still being pumped out from a well beneath concrete slab. I wouldn't be surprised if the building doesn't end up with one or more permanent sump pumps to remove ground water that manages to find a way into the basement.

I think they can sealing the basement after construction is over. Nearly all buildings under construction at the marina pumping water into the sea.

For example: Just have a look to the under construction building "Grosvenor House - The Residence" (in the same pic - at the opposite side from infinity tower at the marina). It also pumping water in the marina.
