This is probably the second tallest building in the world without any cladding at the moment!

And this one's also by Old Town Resident. He put it in the Burj Dubai thread, but,
although big, it's worth to be shown here, too:
[IMG]http://i32.************/2jbuwk8.jpg[/IMG]
The BD, nicely sticking out from behind, is not the main task here, nor is it the Index, nor Al Attar Tower:
it's about the clouds, hovering over Dubai and coming from the explosion fire accident today...
just in case some of you haven't heart about it and wonder about the darkness in the two recent pics.

But nice to see Ahmed Abdul Rahim Al Attar Tower growing steadily...
now the tower can compare to 21st Century Tower as one "shoulder" of Rose Tower.

I agree that it's about time for the cladding... but if this will happen like at Burj Dubai, this won't be the deal:
once started, it'll catch up in a few months. And the area to be cladded is much smaller here,
on a shape that's square and easy.

301m is probably the roof height.

This forum would be boring without Dubai. This building will look great in the SZR cluster.

Surprise, surprise! But this really could be true.
If the roof was at 260m, like Culwulla had assumed on February 5th, the tower should only stand little higher than 200m now, but in fact it looks almost 240m tall. Considering a floor height of 4.0m (instead of 3.4m), the roof of the highest occupied floor should be at 288m plus about 13m for the tech levels - that would just be 301m! Let's give the spire further 55m, and the AAB Al Attar Tower will have 356m in total, even more than Emirates Office Tower.

Although the tower looks slightly smaller than 240m from the recent pics to me, one can say, that this younger brother of the Rose Tower won't remain a lesser one, but might grow up to the same stunning level on SZR.

I have also been wondering about the accuracy of the 301 meters figure. Considering how tall it stands compared to Rose Rotane and the number of floors yet to be build, malec assertions should be correct.

It has to be said though, that the 301 meter figure was for the first design, which was altered.

WELL IVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS DIAGRAM FOR A WHILE NOW. I THINKING IM CLOSE. YES I ALSO BELEIVE THIS TOWER HAS A 301M ROOF HEIGHT. AVERAGE FLOOR= 4M
CURRENT HEIGHT IS APPROX 236M.(oh crap caps lock)
they have labled floors without 2 grd levels. so its 2 floors higehr then indicated.
ive estimated tower width at 30m like RoseR. with 15m street gaps. other towers 35m wide.
ive estimated spire maybe 345m?
what you reckon?
