Im also excited about the tower coming up at the other side of 21 st century tower. This will be a great block, maybe as impressive as the Emirates towers/The tower area.

Do you mean Al Mazaya (aka Park Plaza) or the Rolex Tower? Rolex is UC and rising, but I think the former is still drawing board.

yeah cul is right on height the structure will be 271m from memory with a 70m crown.
so that would make it 341m.These heights are the same as when the day the jump came to site.

How come you guys has changed the height to 345?!
wasnt it official before?
is it possible that the developers dont figure out the actual height before they start?!
