The top of an almost 380 meter high skyscraper, in the shadow of his neighbor which is even higher... Nice!

Everything looks great. It is cool to see the Pentominium lurking up from behind the others.

The cladding and color sheme is aweful on this one. Looks like the unwanted child of Latifa tower and princess tower so far. :/

People have different opinions, and a forum is a place to discuss about them. ;-) And if different opinions are "unwanted rubbish of a troll" than idk why we have forums. I don't bash all Dubai projects, in fact i gave the U-Bora tower in the BB thread a big compliment the other day, as one of the best Dubai buildings ever. Anyway, I am sorry for getting off topic.

It's not a copy, but the Turning Torso in Malm÷ was an inspiration for the shape. At least I think the architect said something to that effect, I'm not 100% sure.

The fact is that 'Turning Torso' will look like a bad copy.

I think this building takes record for fastest cladding in the world.

Nice view if you live there, but it looks almost like if they attached posters of Dubai Marina on the windows, looks somehow fake, is it because of the camera?

I think it's because of dirt on the windows, they have some dark shades on them.

Yes, must be on that list. But now the facade has to wait for the preceding floors. Though slab of the latest tech floor plus first upper floor is completely visible on Imre's pics from 11 Feb, progress seems to have slowed down a bit to normal... the dismantling of core box takes weeks, for instance.

A propos cladding: why are some parts already uncovered and others now?
