my relatives temporarily lived in Capricorn tower, the 45 floor building adjacent to this tower, and I stayed there for a week. I saw it being constructed right next to our building, but I didn't know what tower it was going to be.

It's interesting to know that it's going to be some mysterious clock tower.

What are you guys giving out about? Cancelling the clock was the best thing that could happen to this tower (well, apart from a complete redesign but anyway...)

A complete redesign by Adnan Saffarini studio? Like the redesign of Khalid Al Attar tower accross the street.

OK, maybe not
But, a replacement with United Tower would have been nice.

ok no problem, we all agree that the clock is cancelled by the municipality and thats that, but the question we all are wondering WHY?!!!
if it was ending up to some unique icon for Dubai, there should be a very good reason to cancel such thing! I wish someone enlight us with an answer and maybe this answer will explain why not every city in the world has a nice clock tower!

Complete redesign? But the shape of AYT hasn't changed significantly so far - the "clock floors" are there, with the pyramidal roof yet to come. I'd say the tower is at about 290m now.
Probably, instead of the clocks some rows of windows might be placed in the square openings, gaining valuable office space.
