A really good view of this monster can be got from the SZR coming in from Abu Dhabi. It looks so huge, especially coming from the low rise AD and this is the first supertall you see. It really impressed me when I made that ride recently.

JLT (Jumeirah Lakes Towers) is a masterplaned project with well defined rules. Except Almas the other towers are on clusters of three: On the SZR clusters the central towers are 40 storeys tall and the ones on the sides are 35. On the Jumeirah Island side clusters, the central towers are 45 storeys tall and the ones on the side 40.
