That's a pretty zoom picture, 234sale! Did you take it from the Burj Khalifa observation deck?

Thanks... epic view!

Can't wait to see rest of the tower uncovered... looks like there'll be five levels in the broad section with some rentable space there... one window is already visable. When the "weird" scaffolding is gone, Al Yaqoub Tower will surely give an interesting contrast to the more futuristic claddings of HHHR Tower and JAL Hotel behind.

Here are my merged snapshots from Geralds newest - and strongly recommended - SZR gigapan.

More details of the top(?) floor of Al Yaqoub Tower have been unveilled.
If still anyone had a doubt of AYT's "supertall"-status: yes, it's definatelly taller than the visible tip of Emirates Hotel Tower (309m) to the right.

That last picture is nice but they really need to finish Rosewood and Ahmed Abdul Rahim Al Attar. Anyway, it think this building actually turned out nice and I like the retro twist.

Are you kidding? Wal-mart is way more attractive than this POS. This really is one of the ugliest buildings I've ever seen.

I second that! Obviously, post-modern elements are (yet) unfashionable, but in worst case I'd call the finished parts "kitschy" instead of "ugly". The ugly thing here is the brown/green scaffolding, which will surely be gone soon.

Please don't say that again. The original design that was changed halfway through construction was gorgeous.

Same architect as this one BTW.
