I know it's sacrilege to criticize Imre, but I really don't like the angle of those shots. Doesn't give much of a perspective on things.

Great updates! I am curious... Are Infinity Tower going to be black twisted tower because of that black painting? Am I missing something here?

That's a bitumium based undercoat to protect the concrete from humidity and condensation. It will be cladded in glass and other materials (stone, aluminium or both)panels.

Lots of progress on the floors since the last Imre pics. Great to see the twist really showing. We should start seeing the core rising again soon.

Although the design is not entirely original - there are other twisting towers - this one is very handsome and attractive. A fine addition to Dubai's skyline.
