No Investor will spend 700-900 mil. $ to build a +500m building to be dwarfed by another +800m one.

A 500-600m building must be used to dominate her own cluster.

I love the design of this building.

I don't see why people are complaining about the design. Does every new Dubai skyscraper have to be a revolutionary design?

It looks fine with the spire but I agree that it's a lame tack-on just to beat the Chicago Spire for the record of tallest residential building.

I absolutely love the gardens hanging from the side. Imagine how cool it would be to actually be in it.

Good night render ! I think the spire fits perfectly with the entire skyscraper.

I still don't like the spire... But maybe it will look better once it's build.

Understand you, it's cheap !!

They should increase the floor height to 150 and it's the same result !!!

With or without the spire, the building itself is super-tall and will be amazing once built.

Doesn't that photo show the tower looking thinner or is it just different angle from the usual angle? Is the only thing changed from the old render addition of the spire or are there more?

That render doesn't show the lower part of the tower. So, the tower look smaller than usually.

He said "thinner" not "shorter".

But yeah, it look thinner because this side is flat, while the other side mostly shown here is curved, so that creates the illusion of an wider tower then it really is.

Hi all.

Fantastic building. Had my eye on this one since the beginning.

I think the spire fits nicely.

Can't wait for this to really get rolling and the pics to start rolling in.

That render above is

I slowly begin to think that the spire really does fit the building.

Why not. The 490m tall SWFC will be dwarfed by the 600m new skyscraper next door.

In all fairness, SWFC construction started way before anyone thought about the SC. I agree with you though that height isn't everything, even in Dubai.

Seems they redesiged the back side of the tower, but it still looks magnificent.
