I think the reason they look taller to me (in any picture) has more to do with their height-to-width ratio than their relation to other towers. They have a really tall look about them, but then again they are really tall and would dominate most but the biggest skylines in the world.

I did not mean for the two sentences of my previous post to look like they are part of the same train of thought, they are two separate statements (next time I'll put them in two lines.)

Ok Droneriot and Dubai M, I tried to locate from where this pic what taken using the original pic (https://www.flickr.com/photos/davidgabis/26590937130) and I got this:



So it looks like Fountain Views 1 and 118 towers are on the same plan hence I used the known height of 118 (212m) to calculate that of FV1:



And I got a height of 292m till now for FV1 ... This is getting really close to be a supertall but then I might have messed up with calculations
For a huge project like this one might think Emaar will release official heights but no they don't bother share this with public and the heights we got are only supposedly insider info from a member but the truth is we don't really know and it was never released officially

Just compare FV to The Address The BLVD, then you can see that FV is close to a supertall. Maybe its going to be one?

No they dried it out to finish infrastructure work to prepare for the big opening of the new canal extension and this time really link it all together which will allow boats to sail through it and making a huge chunk of Dubai including Business Bay, SZR and downtown an artificial island

Damn that is an amazing photo, Dubai is the only city where the skyline changes dramatically ever year. Downtown Dubai is growing closer and closer to a New York style skyscraper density.
+According to my calculations on AutoCad from that photo above the booth of the tower crane is actually at a height of 300M. I highly doubt that FV1 wont be a supertall.
