I like it! Plus, it takes the focus away from Al Yucub Tower.

Wouldn't be so bad if there were not balconies. Why do they build so many balconies in Dubai? You can't even use them for 7-8 months. Why do developers always have towers with balconies? In China all supertalls have clean glass facades

Cmon now I always am a supporter of balcony free towers but in Dubai its only 3-4 months that are very hot not 7-8

At least balconies aren't stretched to sides, and corners curve in a nice way.

"How should we name this tower?"

"c'mon, it's a tower, it doesn't need a name!"
"A TOWER ?! You're a genius !"

Because balconies raise the worth of an appartment and it's alway a little plus for the show. and in dubai it's the norm to make a show of any skyscraper.

I think the architects are members of this forum and took the design directly from this smiley.

I just love how casual supertalls are built in Dubai, like meh who cares another 300m+ tower .. it doesn't even make the news

Only towers that are 500m+ are considered newsworthy in Dubai

Its main body is weirdly short and the crown is taller then normal buildings, I think the main body should be taller. Anyway, congrats for the new supertall.

I love this tower. The design feels very "Dubai" while not being bad like many designs in the first Dubai boom.

I like it as well. It might not be the best looking of Dubai ' s new towers, but it fits on SZR nicely.
