So I'm thinking the re-design is just the old design without the clock. Why have they not released a new render?

Are they trying to be as cool as the Burj Dubai team by not issuing a final render?

Maybe... or they prefer to keep different options as long as possible. In any case, Al Yaquob has made good progress until July, the 18th: 4 new floors in 20 days. The core looks about 190 meters here, finally taller than its neighbour Capricorn Tower . Btw on this back side, there still seems to be less cladding fixed than towards Sheikh Zayed Road.

Totally ~50 floors completed. There are ~25 floors above the setback now. Not much way left to be completed.

BTW the glass facade is black and the stone tiles are cream. Their positioning suggest that the design plans have not changed, at least not at the bottom part.

Yup, black glass on the side facing The Tower going up some 15 floors and few on the front side, both in the windows and as facade panels. I haven't noticed any glass panel on the Capricorn side though.

Apart from the hotel in north korea this building and the al attar tower have to be the worst supertalls in the world getting built now.

Malec,

Why do you think this supertall is the worst? I just read that there is still no render. Is it the clock?
