Completed or topped up:

Burj Dubai 415m (and growing)
Emirates Office Tower 355m
Rose Rotana Hotel 333 m

The Index it will be just 328m so even if it was completed today it will not be more then the 3rd tallest tower. There are at least 8 other towers under construction (one will even be completed before Index) that will be taller and more are approved and should start soon.

Yes, it is true that there will be taller buildings than The Index, but still the tower has a great design.

The building gets narrow as it goes higher, and that is not just an optical illusion.

It doesn't look like it gets much narrow in the Rendering. Do we know how wide it'll be at the roof? I'm sure it's going to have one of the largest roofs in the world.
