And that suprises you how? It is common outside of the Americas.

I am more interested to hear where in the hell that window points to

I had no idea that was common outside the US. We stick em in closets in highrise buildings. Out of sight, out of mind (and keeps the noise level down).

Getting new kitchen tiles, new cupboards, and a proper spot for the laundry machine can't be so difficult though, or expensive compared to the price of the actual appartment!! It's just a shame the owners will need to do it after handover.

Do you work for Tameer marketing? Because nobody that's not being paid would say something like that.

You're talking to a stealth spammer, the kind that put spamming links on their signature and post messages (probably script generated) that seams to have a relation to the subject, in the hope of throwing off the forumers and their policing force (the mods)

BTW, most of the formwork has been already removed from the core.

They never do this type of design in Japan. We place dish washers in the kitchen, not a washing machine. It looks so old and cheap. I would have fired the interior designer.

Why would anyone put a washing machine in a kitchen is beyond me. I thought it was a joke! Or is it?

Hm I wouldn't be to pleased to see these pictures if I had bought an appartment in this tower. I already disliked this tower because of the cheap looking white tiles on the outside, but now they're ruining the inside as well. And yes, they MUST have confused the dishwasher with a normal washing machine :S It looks totally out of place. Same for the window.

Good thing this tower looks fine from far. At least if they don't decide to cut the price by making the dome out of corrugated fiberboard.

The building's exterior, height, and crown are what this tower has going for itself. I personnally love the design. I can't wait to see the crown.

Agree. Let's wait until the towers in the tallest block get finished. With all the crowns and lights I expect it to be a spectacular sight at night particularly.

Interior they offer from the shelf is not great at all, but this doesn't concern me to much.

The kitchens that are shown in the pics are probably just the basic kitchen, I'm sure that there are more expensive kitchens in the tower!
