As of today, isn't the tower now the third or fourth tallest in Dubai?

Not "if" but "when".

Apart Burj Dubai that might be taller by the end of the year, it might take a couple of years for another tower to surpass it. Almas Tower (360m) in JLT or The Torch (345m) in Dubai Marina willl (propably) have the honour.

Almas tower will be faster.

and reading that.. somehow disappointing it will take almost another 2 years before any tower will be taller. except burj dubai.
