Looks a bit like those thin matchstick buildings that are all the rage now in New York.

The thing with this tower is that you won't be able to see it very much from the front because its right behind maina 101. You'll be able to see the top but not very well.

This is insane construction speed at this rate the tower will be topped out by quarter two of 2017 and maybe complete by quarter 2 of 2018. This is lightning fast for the Dubai Marina

A floor every 5 days means 73 floors per year, so at this rate we can expect completion of the core to be around June of 2017.
