God forbid one can't have their own opinion.

Princess Tower is not the ugliest building in the world. But it is far from being pretty.

It's more Princess Grace than Princess Diana.

No, it looks like something out of Arabia. Which coincidentally is exactly where it is. Dubai has a lot of super talls planned or U/C with alot of different styles and designs. I think it's good that they at least have a couple which display the traditional styles of the region.

Btw - Big hole

wow, ive always loved this tower. i think Australia's Grocon will build this with new quick slip-jump -form construction w hich will go up 2 floors every 5 days!
A worthy successor to Australia's 322m Q1 and 297m Eureka as worlds next tallest resi tower.!
