Doubt it is final, but amazing design anyways
no way dome is 176m

shorter that figure is very wrong , its about 120m max as most of JLT had a height restriction of 140m (aprox 40F @3.5m floor to floor which is generous )except for Almas tower at 360m

The Dome's thread at SSC says 176m too, and looking at photos of it I'd say there is no way it is any smaller than 150m. But that doesn't even matter. In the new renders the box representing The Dome is clearly taller than the surrounding ones, and about half as tall as Almas Tower, implying AS+GG used 176m for The Dome.

WOW! All the patience was worth it! It looks amazing! I hope the final design will be nearly the same (there will always be changes at the final design)

I like how they feature the new tallest ferris wheel in the render as well although it's not even rising yet

No way the dome is shorter than 150m! Beautiful design let us wait for Cityscape hopefully we get a confirmation.

If everything went according to plan in 2020 we will have 2 topped out towers that are 700m+ and BK!! This is insane ... only in Dubai

P.S: I am secretly hoping this one scores a height in the 800m range
