the crown is looking good, for the hard rock name on the building and the logo on top I am really indifferent. Doesn't look better nor worse with it, so it doesn't bother me that much as it may other people.

Would be funny however if it would have been all residential.
Than it would have beaten 432Park by just 1 meter to become the tallest resi.

Great to see the crown finally underway. The Hard Rock logo makes it look a bit tackier, but not in any serious kind of way.

So this building is to which the mysterious crane in all the marina pictures belongs. Love the design of the crown!

I think it would not look so bad between the other colourful lighted buildings at night...

It's a ridiculous and unnecessary feature. Logos on buildings are awful 99% of the time.

Maybe they just show the sign in the renders, so that people know that there's going to be a Hard Rock Café / Hotel in there and they will not install it on top of the tower in reality...

LOL guys, all hotels have their logos and insignias on top or where they are visible, so why should this be any different? Plus the HRC will be located just under the logo.

It's just cheap and tacky. Also have a look at the letters 'HARD ROCK HOTEL' that are supposed to run down the facade vertically. Just wtf.

I rather want the sign running down the elevator, than the tacky sign at the top of the building.

i just got back from Dubai and stayed at the City Premiere Marina Apartment... From there, I got a great view of Marina 101 and its super-tall companions but to be honest, most of these thin buildings are oh-so-fugly and would look so out of place next to a same height but far more beautiful Petronas Twin Towers!

Although I do like the unique designs of the pencil-top 23 Marina as well as the twisty Cayan Tower!
