WTF are you talking about? Have you even walked around the building?

i only saw the building for a few hours, but i have to say that it is quite a good structure. it is a bit open with open areas, a bit parklike. in front is a place for cabs to easily access it and also to turn around in good ways with nearby streets being pretty clean and everywhere being palm trees and a bit of overhangs so the sun isnt directly shining on the visitors. i think the whole area was quite well overthought.

Thanks for the article, I'm very interested to see what these offices look like on the higher floors with pictures big enough to capture the experience.

Hi all.

Hi Desert.
Great shots man.

Hi Face.
Nice find. Good to see some of the offices are being fitout.
I know Emaar did the office suite on levels 152 to 154 themselves but I presume level 139 was just done core and shell by Emaar and this fitout is being done by the tenant, PPI.


Ray.
