The model looks different from the render which version will be built? I rather the render and not the model.

Look at the model, there's a swiming pool between them, God I'd love to take a swim there, imagine looking up and seeing these towers looming upwards between you

I have reservations about how the top looks like, but otherwise it looks good! Maybe the models are not very good in conveying the real appearance of the structure..?

No, in Sheikh Zayed Road, however it must be said that these are the ONLY highrises on that part of the road. All the other buildings are midrises and we are surprised how they got permission for them there.

The area used to be a Petrol and Service Station, which was demolished to make room for the towers.
