I kinda agree. This is definitely not the worst building in Dubai. That tallish one across the street is much worse, IMO. And the gold-ish one under construction next to it is even worse.

It looks pretty good in that picture. Then again it's a really cool picture.

It is a little cartoonish, but is not an eyesore like the one across SZR...

Also it look good with The Tower.

Is there any chance of this tower opening by the end of the year?

It's funny that you can see the four ugliest skyscrapers on Sheikh Zayed Road in one picture:
- Rostamani Maze tower
- Khalid Al Attar tower
- Al Yacoub tower
- Ahmed Abdul Rahim Al Attar Tower

Owners, architects and facade contractors should be sentenced to sit in front of these towers and look at them for twenty years. These buildings are such an eyesore, it's unbelievable...

The problem with the Maze Tower is only the stupid facade colour choice. If it was white as in initial renders, it would have looked great

I do agree with the last three, but imo the Rostamani Maze Tower is a very nice looking and interesting tower and one of the best examples for how to integrate balconies into the design. There are much worse towers on the SZR.

I'm sorry, but no, this is a good example how to integrate balconies into the design.
And you know what's funny? Somehow I don't think that the asking prices for both projects (when Maze Tower started before the crisis) were far away from each other, especially when you consider the lower construction cost in Dubai.

That's why I said in my opinion, but your opinion ( Aqua ) is great too.
