Great building! Great design! But it must be a contractors nightmare, I can only imagine the details and specifications. The set of blueprints must be huuuuuge.

I don't know. I find designs that seem close to being good end up looking great once done.

I hope that just isn't me. lol

70's? The only thing twistin' back then was those boys and girls on the dance floor. If you mean the facade, I'd say wait until it's done before you judge it.

I think he's talking about the jumeirah beach residences and some other towers there, not necessarily this one.

I think so. I can see why he think this area looks 70s. It kinda look little too 70s to me too. I think it would look much better if they only build one instead too much cookie cutter of tan towers and mixed with many buildings with different colors. It won't look too 70s.

I never liked the look of the Jumeirah Beach residences, but that's ok, they weren't built for tourists/architecture fans to admire, they were built to house people. Not every residential area has to be like an art exhibit.

Actually to the tourists walking beneath them, they look fantastic (well, way way better). The difference is on the details, and those details can bee seen only from close distances.
