IMO, it's easily walkable as long as it is not too hot.

i remember 3-4 weeks ago while running along Marina promenade i saw the LED lighting on the very top of Marima 101...the led illumination was in a shape of a guitar (hard rock hotel) and was changing color..

it was looking nice in spite scaffolders still being around the crown


But i only saw those tests once even though i often see this tower by night all in its full glory darkness

Is the twisting building finished? What's with the top? It looks like it needs a haircut.

Architect was hitting the Crown Royal a little hard. Looks almost as silly as the rest of the building IMO. It soooo does not fit with the other towers there. Buncha classy towers with some kid's tinker toy model next to them.

When looking up from the street, the top seems to fade away and merge with the sky. At the time of construction, Cayan Tower was called Infinity Tower, and I guess that name reflected the effect.

There are actually three towers planned, but we don't know why it's not pictured in this render. (Maybe they cancelled it?)
