Ubora Tower seems to be one of the most undisputed projects on the forum.

Also the almost finished atrium is worth seeing:
the slant of the facade is kept by the major columns in the inside, creating exceptional perspectives.

Some more interior photos, this time from 14th, 24th and 42th floor. These open plan offices/rooms look fine and show the unique shape of the building from inside, too. Of course some partitions may reduce this effect a bit in the end.

It's nothing to do with Dubai.. U-Bora is developed by Bando, a developer from South Korea.

I personally worked on this project with Andrew from Aedas, this was the first mixed use development for them.

But the question remain: Where are the airplane beacons on top of the tower? There are only 2 sets of them going as high as the 30 - 35th or so floor only

Could be from the series "great photographers meet great towers". Among others, the second pic is epic! Also the finished looking smaller tower is a grateful object for stunning pictures with its curved shape and opening in the middle. Thanks a lot for sharing!

What a great ensemble of three (resp. four) worldclass towers with totally different heights and proportions: Burj Khalifa - U-Bora Towers - O-14!
