... Phase 1.

However a 100+ floors iconic supertall is planned for Phase 3, on the SZR facing empty plot on top of the site, now used as parking lot.

Thanks for the new pics! Progress is highly visable: the core is at about 40th floor (the setback seems to be placed above 27th floor, higher than expected) and cladding is about to start, also the window frames can be seen now.

This dark grey coating reminds me of the undercoat sealant that is put on the nearby Khalid Al-Attar Tower, too. Although this would create a remarkable contrast to the bluish or greenish neighbours, some lighter glass or stone cladding will put over this first layer, I bet.

The cladding has started on the side facing UP's The tower. It is stone cladding so I am affraid not much change in facade design (apart of the clock)

It is probably for the future pedestrian bridge over Sheikh Zayed Road that will connect to the Metro station.

It's barely half way up and it already looks so sleender...I guess the final result will look just like those "pencil-scrapers" in HK!
