I'm so suprised so many people hate this building, i think it's absolutely gorgeous, so different from everything being built in Dubai. This building looks solid, it really has presense and mass.

^^ I agree with eduardo, this building is obviously not complete but I think with a little imagination you can see how it'll look when it's done, and I think it's great, one of the best in Dubai anyway. Leave it to Foster to make another great one.

Strangely enough I've always been a big fan of this building, but now that it's close to topping out I'm beginning to have second thoughts...

That split in floors around the thirtieth floor would look so much better on two-thirds of the height of the building, instead of just below the halfway point where it is now. It just makes it seem like the building is 50 meters too tall, and I never expected to say that.

Still, it's one of my favorites in Dubai. It's just so brutally MASSIVE. I just think it would look even MORE massive if it was shorter. Now it starts to look a bit "fragile" up there...

This is (IMO) the best looking building going up in Dubai in current time. Perhaps it's because I like box architecture, and this is the closest thing to it in this city (at least it looks that way to me).

The building is on the 70th marked floor at the moment (or 75th level above ground). Current height seams to be around 290 meters.

If they change colour from current dark-grey to white-grey or white (as in renderings), the building will look better a lot.

Dan in Chicago
Apr 19, 2008, 8:36 AM
This design has grown on me a lot. At first it was "well, okay" but now it says "big modern corporate slab" like the Chase Manhattan Bank in NYC or Chase Tower in Chicago were in their days. There's more to aesthetics than looking pretty... sometimes it's projecting a strong, modern image, or else projecting a feeling of airy open interior space. This is why brutalist buildings can look so appealing even if they're not elegant.

I read back a few posts and was surprised by how many people dislike this building (the Index). It is my favorite building in Dubai.

To me the building signifies strength and dignity. Perhaps it's because I'm from Chicago...
where many of our buildings are 'broad shouldered' and massive.
The Index reminds me of Chicago's Chase
(previously...1st National Bank Building)

http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/540/1fisrtnationaltowerchgouh2.jpg

It dates from 1969 and is 259m or 850 ft tall.
It was quickly overshadowed by the Hancock Bldg...Sears Tower
....and the Aon Bldg (originally Standard Oil) in quick succession.

I'm confused, is the cladding not going to be white as shown in the recent renderings? Unless there is a new rendering that I'm not aware of, I was pretty sure the cladding was going to be white. The windows seem to match the rendering though.

This tower is coming along very well. Imposing and tall, two attributes I love in a tower.

of course it is a real city..i think he meant that the skyscrapers are just one row at the main road.
great image! the index gets better and better but i still don't really like it.

of course it's a city, but I'm speaking mainly of Sheikh Zayed road, which is still wholly "under construction" in appearance.

Why are the balconies on the Index getting as smaller from left to right?

And the Emirates Financial Towers are going to be freakin' awesome once completed. That skybridge will look sweet.

What you see aren't balconies but opened windows, I believe.
