Nice updates!

Awful, cheap interior though. Apartments look small, dark and the view is blocked by other residentials. Too bad.
I was expecting everything to be like the lobby! Stylish indeed!

The construction and internal fitting cost per square feet in the lobby must be much, much higher than what owners paid in the residential floors. There is no way you can deliver such quality in their unit at the price they paid.

Investors should have known years ago that 5-star luxury claims in shiny brochures were unrealistic to begin with.

And yes, apartments look small and probably many are, but 1200 sqft is 1200 sqft. Investors shouldn't complain about area because they decided to go for whatever they have instead of the big penthouse unit.

Indeed, brilliant update imre.

Ok, shall check the price (in AED per sq. ft.) one year back, the exchange rate too, and calculate it (price in € per sq. m.)

PS: Since both the price and exchange rates have been volatille throughout the year, the exact month of the year we're talking about, will help giving you a more accurate answer .... also please, what kind of view you are ''interesed' in, and around which floor. Balcony, no balcony, 1, 2, 3 bedroom or a pentouse ....

That swimming pool looks like a bowling pin, and the jacuzzi is the ball aproaching from behind.

Great pics, will the top of the torch have some sort of lightning feature?

THe top feature was supposed to be made out of LED panels to be used for lighting and advertising of some type, however so far we haven't seen any indication that they made it on the final product. The top part is as dark (at night) as ever.

Thanks, the building itself is a great addition for the tallest block, but the LED panels would be "the cherry on the top of that cake" to make it even more impressive.
