I think this is the first time I've seen it pictured alone. It looks tall by itself....well because it is tall. Wow.

April 27th,

Spires are completed so the building has reached its top height of 306 meters

Are you sure that it is T/O?

When compared to the render I think that the top part is still missing:

agree, seems a small part is still missing...but i could be wrong also because the render is not that detailed to see clear how the spires will look when finished

IMO its not topped out yet because the very top of the spire is missing. There should be a curving piece. No big deal though. A mod shall change the status to topped out if needed.

the spires are 52m in length.
they stick above fin 26m.
current length of spires are 47m.
thus 5m left to add.
or current height = 301m. ;-)

Today I saw what it seams to be the spire in the foreground being higher then the other one, with the last section added on top.

This tower looks like from a sci-fi movie, especially the two horns, or what is it. It`s a pity that it`s standing next to the KING, in his shadow.

Actually, that is impossible. The Burj Dubai Lake Hotel is located southeast of the Burj Dubai and will never fall under the shadow of the Burj Dubai. But, I understood what you meant.
