D1 construction goes on one by one... not much cladding progress, but top floors are there, and looks like sloping roof has started. Should have a bit more than 250m now, I think.

Thanks for the pictures, some interesting perspective, even for us who live in the city and often drive there.

Yes I'm a mod and I DO think before I speak, unlike the primadonna whiners I was referring to.

Now tell me smartypants, when moving to a place, what's wrong on looking how the quality of life is in the 21st Century, instead of glorifying how it was or wasn't in the 16th - 18th one?

So, would this building be considered Q1's big brother or little brother? It is taller than Q1 in every way, except unfortunately the "official" way because Q1 has a pole on top and D1 does not.

Just says

"The tower is the sister of the world's tallest residential building, Q1 in Gold Coast, Australia. Although they will look similar, D1 will be structurally shorter, whilst having a taller roof height at 284m (932 ft). This is because Q1 has a roof height of 275 m (902 ft) with a spire increasing the total height to 323 m (1,060 ft)."

I think it would be fair to call them fraternal twins. I do, however, feel that D1 is getting the better cladding, basically the quality that I expected for Q1 based on its renders (only it would have been greener). They are both wonderful buildings.

The original plan was for a spire too and a total height of 330 meters or smth. I guess it was the height restrictions due to Airport vicinity that "deleted" it (we know the area is effected).

I love the greenery in some of the pics. It makes Dubai look much more liveable.

Lol at the shopped fireworks pic

Or is there some magical barrier in the sky that stops fireworks.
