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.
Wow I didn't even know aqua has balconies And to think some believe balcony integration can't be done properly in good style.

Yes it´s true that Aqua shows one of the best ways to intergrate balconies into the design of skyscraper. But Maze is quite good too.

It looks like the Makkah Royal Clock Tower and Big Ben had a baby. Doesn't look too bad, but I don't really like the design.

Does anyone know what happened to this building? It's obviously completed, at least on the outside, but it has never been opened after so many years, and there's even a kind of barrier with traffic cones and a rope that makes the surroundings ugly and interfere with the pedestrian flow. What a waste, imagine the fortune they would have done by renting the space of the many units this building can have! There must be something wrong with the building, I heard rumours that it has some structural faults, is that true? Just curious here since I live in the vicinity and I can't help every time I pass by to wonder why on earth the building is still not functional.
