This is a very tall tower, yet it goes almost unnoticed. Maybe 300 meters is just not enough in Dubai...crazy thing, but great for all of us.

I think it is going to be a very pretty addition to the SZR, I just hope they will install all that fancy blue lighting they showed on the renderings

Wow, this is a pleasant surprise!, I actually like this one.

The spire should interact well with the other buildings at SZR.

That's a strange Liebherr crane. I've never seen this model before.
