I just hope they don't "forget" to clad and leave the diamonds on top, bare as they are now

But these fine metal frames are way more than just a setting for "diamond" glass cladding. Light from behind can shine through them, so isn't there a transparent or glittering effect, especially when one's driving by?

Okay, they could clad the octogons or install illumination inside, brighter than at the 23 Marina pinnacle, but it works the subtle way, too. To me, this feature looks okay as it is now.

JW Marriott Marquis Dubai set to be world's new all-hotel tower
The 1,608-room JW Marriott Marquis Dubai will hold the world's tallest all-hotel tower record when it opens


JW Marriott Marquis Dubai - the 355-metre hotel located along Shaikh Zayed Road near Safa Park and a few blocks away from the world's tallest tower Burj Khalifa - is set to open in the fourth quarter of this year.

Developed and owned by the Emirates Group, the 1,608-room JW Marriott Marquis Dubai will hold the world's tallest all-hotel tower replacing the 72-storey Rose Reyhaan Rotana hotel on the Shaikh Zayed Road.

The JW Marriott Marquis Dubai will open in two phases, with the first section featuring 804 rooms and numerous restaurants and lounges. At a height of 355 metres, the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai is the tallest dedicated hotel building in the world and is just 26 metres shorter than the Empire State Building in New York.

Rupprecht Queitsch, general manager, told Gulf News that the second phase - the second tower will be opened a year after the first one.
