I think this is definitely the thread with some of the worst towers around.

Yes, some of them are quite ugly, but together, from a distance, they will form a spectacular skyline.

Al Attar, Al Yacoub, HHHR, these towers are hideous! Emirates Park Towers had a lot of potential but from what I see they're coming out okay, not as impressed ad much as I though I would. I hope Infinity Tower doesn't have the same result...

I think we need to wait for them to finish the cladding, then judge. They are putting aluminium strips on the side of the towers which will definitely improve them a little.

Nothing happening , oil tanks and generators have been removed so the site is totally empty now.

I have a feeling that we will move into the "NEVER Built" section soon , just need an official confirmation.

So are those sets of balconies that flair out on the side of the towers?

Some pictures from HHHR Tower

The tower still has quite a few things left in terms of finishing( staircases, bathrooms, etc.). The higher floors are almost done. I happened to have an inspection on the roof, so i took some pics with my crappy cell.

The first car park is almost done. The staircase needs to painted using epoxy paint, and they are still in preparation. The link between the tower and the car park also needs some finishing work. The lift lobby is still awaiting inspection. The contractor is kinda slow, and the organisation is poor.

I haven't gone around to the second car park for inspections yet. It is still under preparation for plaster. Most of the office personnel park in the second car park.

Sorry if the images are huge :ohno:
view from 69th floor.









The towers viewed from the 69th floor balcony.



The spire on the roof.

According to Imre the cladding of Al Attar Tower has restarted. Will probably be on hold again in 2 weeks as usual

Good news for the proposed P17 tower, or the Hard Rock Hotel.

The Dubai-based company’s Arabtec Construction unit received a “letter of award” from Tasameem Real Estate Co, of Abu Dhabi to build “P17 Tower” on Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, according to an company statement posted on the Dubai Financial Market website.

It said the project would take 38 months to complete, adding that the tower had been designed by Atkins and comprised 80 floors, including a luxury hotel, furnished apartments, offices and a health club.

Last week, Arabtec Construction announced it had won a $190m contract to build the Bridge Towers office and hotel project at West Bay, Doha in Qatar.

The project comprises two buildings, one with 45 floors of office space and a 45-storey five star hotel.

Yes seems very cheap for such a tall tower. However it's very skinny and that seems to be the trend for skinny towers such as those in the marina.
