I like how people are digging the cladding, and I dig it too.

People in the UK dislike the Beetham Tower of Manchester because of their random cladding.

and 100 Middlesex street in London

I think they all look quite good.

This one from the tallest residential tower thread immediately made me shout:
"OMG! They've added a spire on top of the Rolex!":

But it's only the crane...

Exhibition of downtown Dubai newbies... Ahmed Khoory Tower, Islamic Bank Towers and Rolex Tower. I wonder which will be tallest among them (excluding the spires of IBT):

Here are two pictures from 63rd floor of Rose Tower(!).

Rolex Tower seems to be almost 10m taller, so the viewpoint should be about 225m - but let's compare the towers in the foreground of the first pic: 21st Century Tower (269m overall, 240m to rooftop) and Chelsea Tower (251m, choice of lense or window glass makes it look a bit compressed, but we see the horizon). So the viewpoint must be near 240m... and IMO the height of Rolex Tower between 245m and 250m!
What do you think?

So cladding is almost complete... only some pieces of glass are missing on the crane's side. While the pattern gets more regular towards the upper floors, the roof part suddenly has a different color: greenish instead of blueish. I guess the redish color is a results of the evening sky reflection, isn't it?
