Honestly people, all these Dubai projects are shrugging off Chicago Spire for real. Not that these new projects are better.

Get anymore flashy with the stuff they're building and people might grow to hate them.
I still don't understand why there building all these tall buildings. Well it's their money let them do as they please. Maybe I'll live to see a super boom in NYC.

Helghast, it might just be an optical illusion.

Both these images show a pointed pinnacle:





But yes. There are a few images which almost look as if the roof is flat.
