most likely because we have just this render, no other possibilities like the Pentominium (there are renders with and without the spire)...

That's Sheik Zayed, which is regarded as the founding father of the country (U.A.E.). The developer is one of his sons ... the infamous one actually.

Actually the first picture, the one with the fountain, is taken from the plazza in front of Burj Khalifa, to which the fountain belongs.

It is progressing, but I can't tell you how many stories, I haven't counted them.

When comparing these photos from 234 Sale and Gerald D's latest Gigapan , where the building can be seen on the right hand side, it looks as if though both the Al Hikma Tower and the the One Dubai Mixed Use Tower has risen by an equal amount of levels up to the 18th of August. Since the Dubai Mixed Use Towers has risen by 8 levels, I would conclude that the Al Hikma Tower did as well, so construction speed is still the same.

I can't believe they would actually put that ugly face on top of the tower. What's next? Obama on top of the One World Trade Center?

Its to pay respect to the person who found the UAE (as mentioned by AltinD) and laid down the path for the people of the UAE to follow. This is a perfect example to show that Dubai is not superficial but also respects its past.

At least the UAE is not using and abusing their ruler and still wants to pay respect to him.
