The bent in the towers is so great. Although they should it cladded with the same glass. I am not to fond of buildings with different color of glasses.

I am pretty sure it is the same glass. The top part only looks brighter because of the sun. The bent prevents that both parts look same colored at times when the sun is shining from a very high angle (at 12:00 AM).

Work has sped up on Vision Tower - it looks like a steel frame is being added to carry the glass fins
(pics by 234sale from Dubai Subforum):

According to this render, the glass will reach higher than the 3 concrete beams, so Vision Tower still might grow
and not have topped out yet, like it has already been labelled in the Dubai forum.

Nice design but the problem is that light mostly transfers into heat when it passes through glass and when you put a huge glass-like thing in front of your skyscraper you are gonna need a hella big cooling system or let the people who work inside to get toasted.

The roof frame looks almost complete, finally the tower could be T/O, I think.

Not my favorite design for Dubai, but nevertheless it looks good. Nice shots with the Burj in the background.

One of the best looking skyscrapers I have ever seen. In any other city this would be huge news, but in Dubai it gets buried. Any near-completion photos?
