I see the complete removal of framework.

So, for me, Al Attar Tower has now topped out.

Actually to me, compared with the nearby 21st Century Tower (269m), it seams like the structure is no more then 280 - 285 meters.

For a second I got right confused. I saw all those missing sections of floor plate forgetting they way the facade wraps around inside. Looks good.

Thought the same !!

Than 301 meters should be the real height and not 342 m !!

God, I hate this speculation.....

The crown and the spire might be 60 meters tall. That can make this tower 340 meters.

Look at your left side, that's Al Attar Tower.

Nice shot, thanks!
But not much visible improvement during the last 6 weeks... I wonder if it's a coincedence that Khalid Al Attar Tower along the road is actually "on the slow side", too...

Slender, but square (in more than one meaning) - that's how both towers appear to me right now. A remarkable thing about Al Attar Tower is how deep the central walls stand back on each side behind the concrete grid. On the pic from Sep 6th, it looks as if in the upper part there's only some floorspace near the four edges.

Anyway, I'd have prefered the curved lines from the renders, and I hope they'll crown AAT and promote it to a supertall, as planned... although a mainly gold-brown cuboid doesn't need a special roof or spire. But 342m sound much better than, let's say, 290 m...

You can't see from the above picture, but the following picture shows that they have already started on the roof structure. Picture taken Oct 18; much thanks to DennisS:

I was just thinking the same... something is happening on top (posted by malec, from flickr):image hosted on flickr


Btw. what a pic by DennisS - that sunset looks almost unreal... Charles Bronson would say: "let's saddle our camels and ride due west to catch the sun!"
