great snaps. ive always wondered why Almas was allowed to go to 300m+ and all surrounding bldgs only 150m. sort of standouts like rats testes.

The JLT (Jumeirah Lakes Tower) project is under the supervision of DMCC (Dubai Metal & Comodities Centre) and Almas Tower is the centre piece of the project.

Almas means Diamond in Arabic and there is where the trading, storing and even cutting of diamonds will take place and all the tenants of the tower will be companies related to the diamonds cutting. trading and retailing businesses. Just next to Almas is a cluster of 3 towers named respectivelly AU (Gold), AG (Silver) and Platinium.

Wow, high-tech impression. Again, a lot of landscaping to do in the JLT area.

Some 10 floors or so were handed over to the owners to start furbishing them. More will follow.

Don't know why but I like how it stands out. I also prefer leveled clusters, but some buildings just look better when standing out. I can't imagine ESB surrounded by 200+m towers. Although that will probably become reality. I also kinda like how Q1 looks in the Gold Coast. Don't know why, it's just the look of the building that makes it look better ,,alone".

And Almas (Diamond) looks now like a real jewel surrounded by gold.

Yeah they did that on purpose. All the JLTowers are around the same hight and almas is sort of the center piece of the area.

I think the podium will look suberb after completion, furthermore i have to say that this tower has one of the best claddings i have seen in my whole live, maybe it will get a symbol for this part of Dubais spread out skyline.

I am really looking forward to see this one topped out.

btw Imre many many thx for this amazing update in all threads.....
