Could be test piles?

The design has potential. It can either look like a sleek, high quality building or could come out looking immensely tacky. I hope the former.

The name is just a working title and will change ... plus it's the last thing to worry about. This is a Al Attar project afterall.

From the history of Dubai tower naming; I strongly think this name will stick for ever!!
Example: The Tower!

Well, Its a super tall, but not "the super tall" at all!
330 meter is not even something in Dubai it self! we will have at least 10 super talls taller than this one T/O before its done....maybe before it even start rising if it took long time!!

Brainless name, clever design.

I just don't think it fits very well right at the beach. It's very corparative-looking and would look better in the middle of the CBD!

It's not on the beach, it's at Business Bay overlooking the created waterway as you can see in this pic.
