At least the UAE is not using and abusing their ruler and still wants to pay respect to him.
It seems more like leader cult to me. Will they cast down the building if there is a new ruler?

There is already a new leader!!
Since like 10 years now.
He was not only a leader, he built this country and started the whole thing.
I respect him alot, as like everyone on this land. He was wise, generous and just.... he deserve it

same difference to having US preseidents on bank notes or calling every school in middle americal JFK High, its a sign of respect. In the middle east a picture of a founding father is different to say North Korea/ china etc where leaders are equated to demi-gods

BTW, isnt this tower suppose to be a super tall, like 330 meter?!
I remember this render long time ago!
It says from the link to the site that it will be 61 stories + 50 meter height of the top part with the picture!
Somebody know if they changed that?

the heigh hasn't officially released, and with 'only' 62 floors it's kinda unlikely to become a supertall...

if they put that photo up, this will be the tackiest building i have ever seen.

to honor a great leader is one thing, but to put a photo on top of a 60 story skyscraper in dubai is pretty ironic (considering the majority of dubai's tall buildings are unoccupied and not entirely filled)

put up a monument or something. not his face on top of (another) skyscraper

well, if each floor is 4 meters tall, and if the crown will be really 50 meters tall, it would reach 298m (4*62+50=298)

let's hope they'll add the two missing meters, another supertall for Dubai would be fine



btw - the 'ground up render' is the old design

Al Hikma slab seems now at lev 28, core at lev 31 or 32, so it's rising almost a floor weekly - that's okay. Nice neck and neck with Private Office to the right.

Yeah, "The Rocketship" appears to be moving along well.
But what happened to the second round of the Private Office?

Indeed... that tower part inbetween seems to be on hold for some months. I bet future Al Hikma Tower tenants wouldn't be angry if this close neighbour ended as a midrise.

i think they'll restart on tower 2 after tower 1 has topped out
btw, looks like the podium of PO got some clading already, which is quite unusual....

btw#2, are the two white colored floors on AHT cladding?
