The top of the spire looks like it is the last part. So I think we can call this baby topped out!

There's still more to go, the spire changes the configuration there, turning cylindric.

how tall is it to the top of the roof?

It looks like 300-320 meters to me, but I thought I would ask...

i drew this diagram from plans to give you accurate dimensions.
its now 332m still another 28m of thinner spire.
It will be 2nd tallest structure in dubai, surpassing the 350m spire of emirates office tower.

The crane looks too short now. Will they lift the spire with hydraulics or will they extend the crane?

Does anybody have a good render of this tower? On the first pages of this thread I can't find any, I'm curious how the spire is supposed to look finally..

Almost fully cladded!

That was really fast. But looks like no real progress on the spire though, they are probably concentrating on finishing the building first so interior works can start on all floors...
