Strange indeed. Not quite sure if it's awesome or horrible...

Awesome of course. In my opinion one of the best buildings in Dubai which are currently under construction.

One of the few towers going up in Dubai I could possibly like.
Resembles a termite hill in some way, d'oh.

I have a feeling that that building will last a long time.

Cladding is inside at the core tower. the outside would be only the white painted cheese wall.

It's hard to tell how many floors have been built? It looks like it should almost be topped out.

Thank you Imre for the pics - also from the interchange at Dubai Marina. Nice photos today!

I count in this pic around 19-20 floors from the roof of the podium to the top.
