I'll bet the neighborhood is glad to finally see some new cladding. Must be awful having to look at a tall black hulk for months on end. Great to see work resuming, even if it's slow.

I really look forward to see this tower finished, it will remind me a little bit my favourite tower in Chicago, the AON Center
Once finished must be really impressive. I'd love to own the top duplex appartment :-)

I would have preferred that too, but:

- Residential towers needs balconies
- Most of the developers followed that local pattern of design on their previous developments as well.
- EMAAR (the Masterplaner) set the tone for that type of design, with their own towers, that were the first to be build in the area.
I don't agree about balconies.

I live in a condo with balcony, quite big, ( too much....) and I NEVER go out there.
So, If I had a condo in Marina 101 building, I am quite sure that I would not miss a balcony.
Actually, in my condo, I wish I had the space of the balcony for another room, not a balcony that I never use...

Anyway, I suposse there must be people that love to go outside or even sunbathing in the balcony... :-)

I don't have a balcony in my apartment, I don't care, the weather is not the best for having a balcony and it gets filthy with sand and dust, however the Marina towers are marketed to people who likes and wants them, also the kind of view from those towers makes the idea of a balcony more appealing.

Having said that, Marina101 is a hotel, hence the lack of balconies (although the residential towers in other part of the city don't usually have balconies).

Friday is weekend so rarely there is any work being done. Having said that, you don't have to neccessarily see the workers for them to actually be there working.
