Here's the roof cladded - except for the vertical parts. To me it looks like those white dormers are all fake. However I like this new adoption of an old-fashioned detail.

not sure if the wine-red pyramid cladding will fit well with the rest of the tower... but still like it.

Looks horrible - sorry. Architecture at its near worst.

And only next door is this beautiful Capricorn - elegant and understated.

I appreciate the tower's contrasting style. It adds diversity!

Don't forget if the material is copper, it will turn green after a while which will look great, and give the building more character.

Not to mention it's a lot more expensive than the run of the mill aluminum finish.

Can every other post not be someone bitching about the tower? I happen to like the different design of this, the top seems to remind me of a wizards tower

One thing though; if the clock is installed then the design of the building will be nothing but amazing, actually it will turn to Dubai newest Land Mark......otherwise yes, its with a question mark!!!!!
