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

No disaccord!

That went rather quick: in 4 days the glass in the facade gap has been put in, except for one floor

At night view from Churchill Residence, I suppose. There are more nice photos from up there here at skyscraperlist.com

I like the accented curve of Ubora Tower next to Burj Khalifa in this rare view:

I wonder why this beauty hasn't gained more attention here recently. Now 234sale has put an Ubora Tower update with plenty of great picts on www.skyscraperlist.com. Just a few of them here...

Finally the top level is being clad, too:

So the exact spelling is "U-Bora Towers":

This tower is a gem among a sea of cheap cladded spire infested towers, it would be real nice in any city not just dubai. They need to take this tower as an example less is more sometimes and they actually need some plain boxes to even out the skyline. You look at the background and theres squiggly towers, polka dotted towers, checkered ones, some lean this way, some that way, pink, purple, green, orange, yellow, gold, any color u can imagine im surprised there isnt a building on stilts built over another building. Ubora is very very nice though and theres definately some of the best designs in the world here their just mixed in the sea of trash though.

Unlike a lot of designs in Dubai, this is truly quality architecture.

If you look at the UAE section, many forum members have visited the site, construction updates where regularly featured on SSC.

I was heavily involved with the design and planning with Bando (Developer) and Aedas (Architect), hence all the access.

I also get paid by the building owner Midas (Asset Management) and Sectorlight (Advertising Company) for their brochure images.

Its been fun

Making a calender as the moment, will have 12 panos in it.

Fine to see your achievements dignified...

I've gotta say this is a really nice tower it's not over the top like a lot of towers in dubai.

Lobby, unlike many towers has an atrium, similar to Emirates towers
