This building has been an eyesore for years and would kill the tallest block if not completed with the crown. please make the crown happen

It will also be 432 meters tall

They will build the crown. I'm sure. They built the ''heart'' of the structure already higher than the highest currently built floor.
And at Al Attar Tower it took forever until they start to build the crown too. At AAT the cladding was also already finished before they started to build it.

A rather ugly version of 432 Park Square, since it lacks that building's huge square windows.

For some reason, I love 23 Marina. Especially in this picture!

The fact they still have to cranes up top shows to me they plan on continuing with the crown. They wouldn't be keeping two cranes just to lift some glass.

Let's not turn this into another Infinity Tower scenario, when everyone thought that Infinity's crown would be left bare and unfinished.
