I'm not going to say that it's growing on me because it's not but it is what it is. I don't consider it the tallest building in the world so much as the tallest something else. Never liked towers that were simply towers to look at...they just don't seem to fit into a good looking skyline. Just my opinion.

On the other hand, it may turn out to be a beauty. After all, the Eiffel tower was considered a blemish on the Paris skyline for years after it was built. This, while still ugly as sin IMO, is starting from a better position.

What I really want to know, however, is how this thing is supposed to generate revenue for its owners. How much could they possibly get from so few potential tenants (like, one if there's a hotel) and an observation deck? I guess it's just meant to act as some sort of "overall" part of the Dubai package and help attract business.
