The cladding looks like this tower in Rotterdam, The Netherlands (Maastower)! Also with some darker and more lighter effects.

But very nice tower !!

By FAR the best tower in a sea of dross. Thankfully this tower is separated from the main cluster so you can better appreciate its remarkable form.

It's seperated because DAMAC Heights is progressing very slowly and Marina Sky Towers (those were supposed to go behind it, if I recall correctly) are apparently dead and buried.

Point is, in the original plan for the tallest block Infinity Tower wasn't meant to stand alone. We're just sort of lucky that - at least for now - it does.

Something else will just go in it's place. Not likely as tall though.

The tower should be taller, half of a twist more and without the roof feature and it would be perfect for that prominent location at the main marina bay entry.

Well, DAMAC Heights will hopefully go ahead as planned. Marina Sky Towers - unless at some point in the near future hell freezes over - will of course be replaced by something someone with at least half a brain designed.

Marina Sky Towers weren't that close, but there is another plot just in front of the Infinity on the sea side.

The cladding is even everywhere. It is lighter in some parts because the sun's side of the sky is reflected there

There have been some proposals for there ... but such proposals have been put forward for most of Dubai and as most of them, will not happen.

We have discussed those long time ago in the UAE section.

Though top floors are on the way: no. Big fins will continue the twisting facade up to 307m. On latest pics, I'd see the core at around 275m.
