Sorry I thought that the 11f podium was included in the 77f, in that case they are most definitely supertalls

This seams to be in ground work stage, not just preparation.
If they are actually doing the piling for the towers, this mans U/C by the definitions in the supertall forum

Very unlikely, since all renders and models have shown these towers to be quite a bit smaller than the 306m Address hotel...

There is always visible pregress between the updates but it's hard to consider it to be U/C... just like Dubai Pearl over the last months

But it's nearly sure that this will be under construction.

This thread should be moved to the 'Supertalls' section. The actual piling is in full swing on site. At least half a dozen piling rigs at work, a few cranes, concrete pumps pouring and ongoing static testing of already casted piles.


.... though, I do understand that pictures from the site are lacking

I take it the Emirates Park Towers are not accessible to the public? Otherwise they'd make a perfect vantage point for updates. (At least the southwest one)

My guess is 320m but it might be 15 meters taller or smaller, so it would be good to find out the actual height...

They are, there's even a carp park at the side of the hotels exactly opposite the construction site some 100 meters away

They will form a nice 'Gate' together with EPT on the other side of the creek extension
