Question

I find it strange that Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects (formally Cesar Pelli Associates), EC Harris International, Buro Happold, and Bauer International got no information on their sites about this project whatsoever!! Not even a dinky listing or name mention!

No official website for the project either! And the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, (HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan) got no website!

Am i only one that find that to be strange?!

This is a Great Tower! Everything is great with the exception of the wing type things near the base. Other than that, i think this tower is pretty stunning!
