Okay there was no update a long time... But I searched and found some recent pics at the official (?) site of Burj al Alam:

Out of all the crazy supertalls going up in Dubai, this one along with the Burj are my favourite. I like the uniqueness in style and the height is pretty much on par with Hong Kong's US7 ICC, i'm torn between which I prefer more. The foundation and site looks pretty vast.

nice tower, Ive got to ask this, how many towers does Dubai have u/c that are 400 meters or more? I know this is not the place to ask, but Ill probably forget this question and never ask it again.

Others are in planning stage, but not under construction.

I may be wrong but i think:

3 Completed.
18 U/C
10 Approved But not yet under construction.


I think Dubai will end up with more 300m+ towers than all the other's in the world combined.

When do you think the preparations of the terrain will be over to start the construction of the tower?
