That scaffolding at the top is insane, I think it has about 40 levels.

Looks pretty close to T/O. How much more height for the spire to go?

Looks to me like it's at its final height. This one should be topped out.

Maybe you're right ... or the missing segment is not much longer than the tiny octogonal finishing on the renders' top.

This view - most likely from Mag 218 Tower - will be blocked step by step by The Pentominium...

There's a bit more scaffolding on top than in May 27, isn't it? So no topping out then.

Here's 06/June/2011 from 234sale on skyscraperlist.com:

Wikipedia's listing this thing as topped out on "List of Tallest Buildings in Dubai" but not "List of Tallest Buildings in the World", so can someone confirm the status of this thing?

The wikipedia information was probably written by some one on this forum.

Yes, it's topped out. There's even a temporary beacon lighting up on top.
