HAHA, the name is 'the skyscraper'

Excellent design I must say, I didn't expect to see another project in Dubai considering many other projects being effected by the global inferno of economy.

This is a quiete old project but it was on hold for ages. Now it seems that another contractor was found and they started with pilling.

wtf it looks so over 330m in the first render it looks more like 450-500m tall rather than 330m tall.

also it should 500m+ for the building to be named the skyscraper. but great design. they should supersize it to be 500m+

Compared to its surroundings, this building almost seems . . . normal! Certainly an interesting design for Dubai. Kinda reminds me of an exhaust tip on a car.

I hope this one will get real. In addition, it needs a new name.

If there is "The Tower" in Dubai, why not having also "The Skyscraper"

It looks good... but it also has the most unoriginal name I've ever seen for a tower... ''The Skyscraper''
I wonder whose the genius who thought about that

"The Skyscraper"... now thats a name I guess its better than "A Skyscraper" or just "Building". Are all the cool names taken already?

How does it translate in Arabic?
