The building reached its final height in autumn 2013. The started in 2007, construction is scheduled to be completed in the same year of the topping-out ceremony.

The four canopies around the foot of the building form through their free form and materiality in wood an impressive contrast to the height and dramatic architecture of the glass façade skyscraper. Their shape alludes to the traditional sailing ship in the Gulf region, the Dau.
