I like the new design! The facade looks a lot cleaner. I wonder if they're going to put a wind turbine in that hole at the top?

The cladding is going to look as bad as Marina 101's. I guarantee it. Even the color scheme is the same in this render...

And it's the same architect as Marina 101. I still hope the cladding will not be as bad.

It looks rather stylish, the flat roof is something different amid the spikes and spires.

What will go on the top, a tuned mass dampner?

This can turn out really good, or really bad.

It doesn't look like that, also the swimming pool on top does play that role.

The building is made of concrete, not steel. The vibrations would be less in that case .... now an earthquake is another matter

Never heard of anything big, but there's the edge of the Arabian Plate pretty close by:

Their design and foundation is thoroughly tested in labs like wind pressure,earth quake,typhoons,temperature and finally approved by GOVT.

Taipei 101 have faced 6.6 Mag.Scale earth quake during construction at full height (u can see on youtube also) even crane fall from 450 m but structure remain intact....

Yes but Taipei 101 is much more quake-proof than Dubai towers. But it's still very likely, that they are intact after a standard earthquake lol...I hope
