I like the first tower and the second render. I am not yet ready for twin towers that look like they are diseased.

Now to fix it? Get rid of the bulbous additions and the red splashes of paint. I think they'd find the glass fitment to be a nightmare anyway.

The first tower is brilliant, the second one looks like a ... well, it's just ugly.

isn't this project the same as the "lighthouse tower" it looks to be in the exact same place. Perhaps this thread should be renamed or closed if I am correct.

Could be. We don't know but the atkins one could have been a proposal for the lighthouse tower but the first one is clearly not in the same place. I guess eventually something will be announced on this plot but when.

The second building by ATKINS (the one with tumors) is NOT related with The Lighthouse Tower (also a ATKINS design) in any way. Both towers were showed on ATKINS stand and this one was labelled as DIFC CENTRAL.

Hmm, so now we have 4 proposals for the "DIFC Central" tower which no official news has ever been released yet more images keep popping up.

According to me?

Hm, true The Lighthouse was not proposed for the central plot of DIFC but they moved the location of the tower, so maybe now it occupies the central plot, or maybe not.
