Seems small compared to some of Dubai's current projects. But a very nice tower regardless...

It's being built in Doha (Qatar) and not Dubai. Even so it would still be a biggie even in Dubai.

A building that is 437m tall is nowhere small. Not in New York, not in Hong Kong and not in Dubai.

There's another sign on the site which says 90 floors... So we're not sure whether it'll be 90 or 92.
Anyway, the thread's title was updated a long time ago in the Qatari forum. Perhaps a mod might change this one's...

Why on some other threads it say "Completed" when the respective towers are far from it, some even still a hole in the ground?

No idea? I never even noticed that before...
It's only one tower which is 445m tall (incl. the spire)...

@AltinD

Well, I have never seen that.. I believe that we have two threads for this towers.. one in the Supertall forum and the other one in the Qatar forum. If I am wrong, please correct me.
