This doesn't even remotely look like one of the WTC towers.

Looks great from both sides. I know alot of people disliked the design and renders, but I was one of the few who liked it from the beginning. Once fully cladded it will be one of the best looking towers in Dubai.

317m is not very high in SZR!!
emrates tower 355m, Yaqoub tower333, rose tower 330, alattar tower 342, and the index 328 are taller.
Makes this one look some how not tall enough!

The scaffolding around the spire is being removed and I don't like the spire getting much narrower half way up. The top section is way to thin. For a better aesthetics they should have gone with the fat spire from bottom to top.
