They have a lot of work to do, but it's almost finish the tower and that's great.

This is a hotel.. right? I have mixed feelings towards this tower, on one hand I'm sad to hear that it's going to steal the title of "the world tallest hotel" from the Burj Al Arab because this hotel is simply unique and amazing, but on the other hand it's good to have a taller hotel around

One question... where is the swiming pool going to be? anyone knows

On the roof of the multi-storey parking building, located just behind the tower, and connected with it via a sky bridge.

Indeed, no panels fell down or were broken.


BTW, the sphere on top is almost completed.

It is a Hotel Apartment, meaning it has apartments and not regular hotel rooms. As for ridicuosly expensive, we don't know now how much, or what do you think fits that criteria.

Well, with the twice as tall Rose Rotana just meters away, no pilot will ever dare to land there.

That's a dizzying shot! Thanks for braving the heights. Looks like they're going to need a lot of Windex to clean this puppy.
