I wouldn't mind the bar on top. The views fom the Vu's at Emirates Towers Hotel are already fantastic, and here it will be even (much, much) higher
views from bar 44 at the top of the grosvener house arent bad either

There are three cranes erected and working on site already, meaning the piling for both towers and part of the podium is completed.

They have been pouring concrete for the past 2 days on the basement of the waterfront facing tower, the one with the completed piling as shown on post 55.

I don't know about the other tower but a crane is erected on that site as well, so they must be still preparing for the pour (if not done already).

Just a boring 201 meters tall office tower.

Thanks Imre.

Let's hope the glass is as almost as great as in the renders...a rich blue. If so, they'll be knockouts.

Boring? Yes, compared with what's going around. I guess that most highrise-fans would love to have the Citadel u/c in their city, here it will look mediocre.

To me, the Emirates Park Towers are no actual beauties with their unconventionel design, but certainly will be eycatchers . When these massive twins rise, towers like the Citadel might get an inferiority complex...
