In any other city this tower would be a stand-out tower. In Dubai though it's a small fish.

But in August, the cladding process has continued, both on top and bottom, as the following updates on http://www.skyscraperlist.com prove.
Maybe we should put the thread back to u/c skyscrapers.

Roof feature got mostly clad now... Vision Tower still a "slowrise", but obviously not really on hold, in contrast to Bay Gate to the left:

What do you mean by empty? You can't see what's inside

Thanks. I think it's not just clean air that gives the glass a different color at the top.

Oh, by the way... looks like crane has gone on the most recent pic (Vision Tower to the very right in the background):

Here's the - as it looks - finished top of Vision Tower, seen from Ubora Tower.
Behind at Bay Gate has been some construction action again in January.

Tower Vision is a business model in Dubai in every way. This skyscraper has 51 floors of a commercial super curved glass front, high-tech transparent glass and unique lighting technology, making it bright at night.

Lobby looking very nice, and complete. Security guards discussing whether it was a week or a month until it opens...
