it's all dusty and dirty on those shots. looks better in reality (e.g. when you go to the the showrooms).

the kitchens look outdated indeed. IMO it comes down mainly to those urgghh kitchen tiles. I'll repeat myself: get rid of the silly tiles, add some indirect light, some modern decoration - and it will be fine.

the ceiling tiles are only in the kitchen. most towers have them. has anybody a good idea of what to do with'em?! suggestions or experience with remodeling are appreciated.

I only said that massive buildings look better in a cluster, and those are not very massive. I didn't said if it are the right way to be or not.

White is the totally dominating colour in the 2nd pic for the non-reflective parts of these facades... but Elite Residence will add some contrast when the protective layers come down at the top half as well.

From this view, it looks like cladding is almost done, exept for the parts above the two top corner balconies and a bit of one arch cornice. The tracery may receive a finishing, though they could let the tracery almost as is - would be a lot of extra work to paint or clad it as white as the rest of the crown, and the light grey fits well to the spire.

I've always found the crown on ER so unusual but it does work I feel. Great to see this one T/O as well.

They finally got rid of that ugly scaffolding on the spire. Took them long enough!

In close ups the cladding on the top part is ugly, but I think they aren't finished with that yet.

No you should mention this, it's on this gigapan by 234sale, linked from skyscraperlist.com. Superb view!

Btw have you been up Elite Residence at the same time as 234sale, PrincessTower?

Wow the crown is looking nice, don't really like this cluster of buildings as a whole though, just looks silly.

Thanks for the info on the interior shots Princess. Yeah they look "ok" but it looks like typical office ceiling tiles there for the kitchen? The wall tiles are also only ok but the fixtures don't look very robust for such a high-class tower. Of course fit-outs aren't done yet but I do hope they improve on what's there for sure.

The fake ceiling with such tiles is the norm in Dubai because the A/C unit is located there, as well as the ducts feeding the outlets on other areas of the home.

I also don't like the kitchen tiles, but they can be changed.

That light-brown color is much better than only white, I like this.
