Very nice. It's a simply box but in Dubai it's quite original. I think that Dubai lacks more international style buildings.

It's better than it's neighbors, certainly quality wise. The facade is very slick. I'm not usually a big fan of random cladding, but I like it here, it provides a nice contrast.

The core(s) are topped off and will not rise any higher.

So only a few meters away from topping out, if the fins go a little higher than the two cores.

This view of The Index proves that Rolex Tower on the left is much taller than the sometimes overrated neighbours Angsana Hotel & Suites (about 220m each, not 250m). But Rolex Towers is among the dominant towers in the Dubai skyline now:

Is that by Norman Foster himself? If so I have to agree with you. You know, an agency bears his name right nao (Fosters + Partners)

Of course, there are probably dozens of architects there and each project has a whole team working on it...

I doubt that it's his personal design, but in the end any project that comes out of there bears his name (not only the agency).

I'm sure that there are bad designs that he hasn't worked on, and I'm also sure that there are brilliant ones he had nothing to do with.

Crane is down, the tower topped out, and only the top plus one edge is waiting for this awesome cladding.
