my latest estimate with SWFC is 260m while burjD is at 228m so only 30m behind.

Considering the tower is G+M+70 and has a spire, it may easily touch the 300m mark. Maybe some Emporis editors can contact the architect for the height and a bigger render.


BTW becouse of the newely imposed Airport Height Restrictions, I doubt Al Durrah 2 is being build at the original height of 330m. Two plots away, Al Rafi Complex, got a permision for just 197 meters maximum height, so they scraped the first 350m design.
Altin, I mentioned this to the architect and he said they ebnded up with special permission to go full heing on AD II but Rafi plot is also U/C so maybe they also got permission. This Airport height thing was something I encounted when planning the four Seasons tower and it seems that DCA has changed their minds again

Saw it at emporis now. Al Durrah Tower II is under construction.

But there must be a new supertall over 330 meters or a new height over 330 is known. I can't see it.

Al Yaquob Tower is going to the second site.
And I can't see it. Grrrrrr

I only hope it's not a never built!!

so SZR will not be affected?

what about the Marina.. they should really get an idea what do to now ...

but i think Al Rafi has been redesigned to the new render we got... weird AD2 has special permission..

we will see.

hey cul, can you add cranes on CF A? and CF C will be 448,2m, so should be a bit taller.

and some more tech info corrections
City Hall - 71f, 308m
Mercury City Tower - 70f, 380m

Not sure yet about Russia Tower. Some company is assembling construction town and clearing the plot. When we will know what company exactly we will able to tell that works has begun...
