This whole block of skyscrapers is incredibly tacky and cartoonish.

I wasn't expecting a beauty and this one certainly isn't but I gotta say that this slightly exceeded my expectations. It's still a hideous monstrosity but it doesn't look as bad as I was expecting.

Above the clock it looks nice and striking but the under the clock the tower is ugly.

Well that's the big mystery of this tower. First it was going to be a larger replica of the British Parliament clock tower (or Big Ben, if you wish). Then the design was changed and the clock was (supposedly ordered to be) taken out. But there are apparently some who want it back, and the 'clock part' of the tower has been under wraps ever since.

We await the day it is finally unveiled in all its splendor.

and look at the tall spired building next to it. Is that one even a real building or a 300m cardboard cutout?

Lol!................

Well, at least the two suit each other
On a serious note, would've been much much better without the clock and a different top, if they wanted to put a clock, they should've learned from Makkah.

When you said that I put in bold in your quote, were you describing the Maze Tower?

Last update was 2 months ago. Has anything changed since then, or has the construction stopped?

He must have been, since I don't believe you can dislike Capricorn's or The Tower's cladding.

I think you're talking about Khalid Al Attar Tower
