Do you mean the ones, which construction is visible on Imre's pictures on post 777 ?

Those are actually 3 towers and we know them as Dubai Islamic Bank Towers (even that it seams DIB might just see the financing institution and not the developer/owner). We have a thread for them in "Downtown" section of the UAE forum.

The red poster marker seem to be a bit inaccurate, the 200m mark is far below the framework which is just 28m above



Unless the 200m mark is the top edge of the poster, which doesnt sound very logical...

I see, will try to visit it at night, looks like an amazing empty plot, no distracting street lights to affect the picture quality! Thanks Imre!
