I really like these. They are not the usual Dubai tackiness. Very clean but eye-catching design.

I find it strange that this building didn't get more attention. It's a great design and more importantly it shows the dedication of a major korean developer into Dubai. It is projects like these - where international investors build towers and marketing to their local market - which will solidify Dubais position and create the increased demand that is needed for the boom to continue into the skies without a crash.

edit: why does the title say both "256m" and "XXXm"?

The XXXm is for the 20 story building.

Great complex, I really like the mid-rise building, very unique. The higher building compliments the lower building very well.
