They have now a main contractor on board.

It is the company called ACC that build Rose Rotana Hotel (333 m), the iconic Park Place (236 m) and is currently building: ALMAS Tower (360 m) and PRINCESS Tower (414 m), among other projects.

They are good builders

One of Dubai's ugliest. I think more towers there need to go with more modest designs to acknowledge that they really are just filler. Instead they try to distinguish themselves with all kinds of shiny trappings and wind up being abortions like this.

This no Abortion, this is the post Modern world. Another modernist glass building would just be a filler, unless it's ground breaking in 2007 the truth is it's just filler.

On the first render the design looks a bit sleezy. But on the render with the other buildings it servers its right as a good design. This one is going in the marina right?

I think this is one of those who will look much better in real life than on the renders due to its originality.
