I agree, maybe not the best, but certainly not the worst. At least someone had an idea for this building and stuck with it(maybe without the clock), dont want to sound like a lover of this design, but come on, look across the street before you beat this one up!

Hey, a rare praise, for this one. I also prefer a building with distinctive layout like Al Yaqoub Tower
to a box like Rosewood Dubai in the center of the photo below.
Of course the use of a modified copy for the top is debatable, also the cladding colors of the bottom levels.

"Clock part" still hidden by the way...

The circle on top has been reveled. Would there be a clock face there? Let's wait and see.

Actually is called The Building by Daman, where Daman is the developer. However that is just a code, not the building name. It will have a Rosewood Hotel so probably it will be called that at the end.

Not yet... but there could be one soon right in the opening, that is bordered by a round cladding edge now.

The building isn't a real masterpiece, but somehow, it fits to Dubai...

Aww... still no clock. I was kind of hoping they'd sneak one in, right at the end when it was too late for anyone to object.
