The tower looks plain, but still useful. I think its 30F, according to the renders and drawing. Thanks guys for the pics and thread.

Nothing exciting about this one... But a 30F tower is definitely a nice addition to the towers in the West Bay!

^ The location is good but the tower itself is ugly. Nothing original about it. The base looks huge and I think it will look big when completed!

Yes, that's why I consider the location bad...right behind the Dafna Complex (35F), and this one is only 30F... It will be hidden behind the monster! Not a big loss considering the design is poor Or maybe this was meant...well great planning this time

the point is that its not good to build big towers infront of small ones so it would be cool if low rise is near the cornesh road then behind it with mid ris and bejind all that high rise like barwa tower dubai towers dafna towers etc btw how much diffrence is the hight between dafna towers and umm bab tower ?

It depends on your land. If you own a land behind Dafna tower, you can build a 15 story building or a 150 story building.
