Beautiful design. Many of the new buildings built in China look far more tasteful than those designed to be built in Dubai.

I agree with you 100%.

The Chinese seem to have a more refined and elegant aesthetic.

Quite frankly the majority of tall buildings in the Middle East are gauche and kitschy. On the other hand some of the nicest towers are going up in China these days.

BM:
Could you try to make pictures of the base of the tower - I would love to know how is the cladding at the ground floor/lobby level. I'm sort of making a model of it for SimCity4

Cool aerial shots! Anything proposed yet for that big empty plot near the tower?

I think they're planning some kind of shopping center but demolition of the last few buildings hasn't progressed in years. Also, I think they're building a metro station on the plot, maybe it has to be completed (projected 2011-2012) before commercial development can begin. I don't have any real solid info, sorry
