It's those eight vertical columns. Architectural height is 307.3 m according to CTBUH.

With Cayan Tower completed and only Damac Residenze under construction, it's saddening and depressing to see Dubai's skyscraper construction boom is finally over. With so many supertall projects are on hold, otherwise Dubai would've the greatest skyline in the world

Yes, I remember about 5 years ago when I first started looking at this board that the top of the first page was almost always filled with Dubai projects. Now it's all China, the amount and quality of stuff they're building is amazing.

They might put the Dubai City Tower under proposal, and that's 2400 metres...

Ten supertalls are U/C or T/O in Dubai according to CTBUH.

One Park Avenue (550)

5 towers subsequently cancelled due to global recession
Nakheel Tower (1000+)
Bin Manama Twin Towers (454)
Anara (655)
The Lighthouse Tower (402)
Dubai Towers (360-550)

The Skyscraper (330) and Dubai Pearl (300) might be on hold as well. Not much construction has been observed lately.

I might have missed some other projects as well. Dubai would have been the undisputed king of global skylines if all these were built. Such a shame that so many good looking projects had to be scrapped

I think it's actually good that most of the construction projects have been completed and not many new towers are rising. At least Dubai doesn't look like a huge construction site anymore and its skyline is mostly crane-free as well now. I'd take that over having new towers everywhere shooting up at the same time again.

I finally got around to uploading this video, my seaplane flight from the Yas Viceroy Marina, Abu dhabi to Dubai Creek Yacht & Golf Club with Seawings Dubai; it was about 35-40 mins flight of amazingness…www.travellersbazaar.com

According to wikipedia, it's gonna be complete in 2025. I say that's rubbish. More like 2050-2100.
