I have a little question:
Why does the building have concrete only in one corner? (see #246)
I think it`s quite wierd... BUT - maybe that is the reason of the old delay or was it there from the beginning?

Trivia: When searching for Al Yacoub on google the top hits are all "Most wanted terrorists" lists

The concrete-covered windows on the right side look strange...

That building u/c on the right is Rostamani Maze, but I think he meant the completed one on the right, that would be the Capricorn Tower.
