Don't be ridiculous. This building (the main building not the car park) did NOT catch on fire. Altin has an encyclopedic knowledge of construction happenings in Dubai, and others of us have been following things close enough as well to know.

In case you haven't noticed, the "ball" opens up, so the antenna wouldn't be suited to be there.

Sorry, i didn't knew that, I haven't read the whole thread. So what is the reason with the "ball" opening? Searchlight?

Are you seeing things that we others aren't?

If you are reffering to the parts of those two towers that are in black, that is waterproofing layer applied over the concrete before the cladding panels (either glass or aluminium) are to be installed.

I thought it looked ugly in the render but this building turned out very nicely. I love this building.
