The problem with buildings in Saudi Arabia is that none of us westerners will ever be able to travel there to see them because you're not allowed to visit for tourism or sightseeing. In any case I believe this will be a world class skyscraper.
I totally agree. This isn't the greatest rendering because it looks greenish, but here's an idea of what it's going to look like.



The renderings don't do this building justice. I see a great tower in the future. You can't look at a building by its rendering. Like One World Trade Center.

Rendering:



The spire looks horrible. It's pretty much the reason we have the majority of One WTC antenna haters existing.

Look at what it REALLY looks like:



It looks even better at night when it's lit up.

The point is, this tower is an elegant work of art. I hope you guys see it in the middle of construction or something

Oh, and by the way, I don't know what the Infinity Tower is. Could you send me a link to its thread?

I mixed up the names of the towers, the one in Dubai is the Infinity Tower and the one in Moscow is called the Evolution Tower. Here's a link:

I know about the Evolution tower. I meant the Infinity Tower, or does it not twist?

Oh yeah. Cayan Tower is nice. Tallest twisting building in the world. Or is it Shanghai tower? Because Shanghai tower might not qualify because it is under construction and/or it doesn't twist all the way to the top. Is that true?

It's very interesting how actually the tower doesn't twist at all. Majority of the tower is a cylinder, just a very thin stripe is twisting around that.

Still, excited to see how it's going to look.

i also think the renders do not do this building justice. with a nice cladding the building will look a lot better and not as tacky as the renders may indicate what it may look like.

Seems like a bunch of wasted space to me. But, if you have more money than you know what to do with and a clientele that will buy/lease the space...go for it.
