It does resemble the JHC a bit because both have this sort of shape:




In fact the index looks more like the JHC since it's also bulky (not saying that's a bad thing of course)

... I still don't understand though how Rizzato came to the conclusion that this building ressambles the Hancock Centre in any way.
I was refering to the X-brace of the Hancock.

this is the first thing in all of dubai, that I don't hate. (some tower designs are nice yes, but what an awful place) Hopefully this tower marks the start of a new environment-freindly movement in dubai (I certainly hope so)

man this is one hot skyscraper... go Dubai!

there's one tower and im dying to know the name of it. i dont know if its in dubai or not but i think it is. The front tapers back as it gets higher and then at the very top there's a rectangle shape hole (i guess for an observation deck or something) that goes through the hole building... can anyone help?

Monster tower? Do you realize this is actually just an average ~250 m 60-something-floor building, only with ~150 m of cheating latticework added on top of it to make it look as if it were a 400 m 100-floor supertall when it's not?

Excellent design. A real breath of fresh, if slightly sandy, air.

I just showed the renders to someone and they said that it looks like a cheese grater. And it kind of does (and yes, i know that 122 Leadenhall is nicknamed the Cheese Grater).
