Well if the "shorter tower" is already bigger than Almas (360m) then the taller one would be most likely more than 700m.

Wow! Gabriel, Whisky Peak - thank you guys for the good news
And Gabriel in your first photo Almas tower is so elegant
I hope that even in comparison with these mighty beasts, the Almas Tower will not lose its splendor

I look out of my office and see a sign of activity for the first time in over a year. I wonder what they are building, so I Google it, and end up on SkyscraperCity. Created an account just so I can share this picture. I'm not as interested in skyscrapers as most people here, but I'll try posting a picture once in a while, considering I have quite a good view on the site.

That's absolutely great! From all of us here at SSC: thanks for that.
We're looking forward to any and all picture you will post here in the future.

The like button alone is not enough to express my gratitude, thank you so much for updating this project, amazing view too! This will be the 3rd tallest skyscraper / 4th tallest human made structure in the world upon completion, you are witnessing first hand history in the making.

Welcome inronny!

Thanks for exclusive update!
I thought that it would be possible to install a web camera in your office and then everyone could see the progress in real time

In any case, continue to visit the ssc, and someday you will love skyscrapers as well as we love them

Thanks everyone. Unfortunately for yall I won't be in Dubai too much longer,
maybe 6 more months. No new picture today, nothing really changed, a few more machines, a few more cars parked at what I suppose are offices and thats it.

I prefer to use the available bandwidth for other things. (missing the see no evil emoji on this board)
Skyscrapers, they were cool to see for a few times in the beginning, now I am used to it, and trying to escape the concrete, sand and horrible temperatures as often as I can. But it's impressive how they build it, I can totally understand your enthusiasm.

inronny, we greatly appreciate your updates!
Maybe there is a chance to find another person in your building to keep us updated in 6 months time?

Excellent update

That corner closest to Jumeirah Islands, with 3 excavators working on it, is for this 350-400m tower:





The megatall itself will be on the opposite corner, closest to Bluewaters Interchange. Unfortunately it seems like the side of the building blocks some of the view.
