I know this is off topic, but does Dubai have an offset code and if it does what are the podium offsets? If someone wanted, could they build wall 2 wall?

I cannot answer your question since I do not know.

But I will give you my thoughts and observations:
The buildings constructed in the newer areas of Dubai (Sheikh Zayed Road and Dubai Marina) are not built wall to wall. If they are, it is only for the car parks / parking garages. I have seen this occur move often in Dubai Marina than along Sheikh Zayed Road.

In the older areas of Dubai (in Deira and Bur Dubai) the buildings are side by side (they are really close together if not touching).

I think it all comes down to the specific area of the city and the architect/developer. Most buildings built in the newer areas want to stand out. Also, they are usually covered in all glass (with residential buildings having a lot of balconies). To achieve these goals (standing out and having glass on all sides (or balconies)), it means that a building must stand independent of other buildings.

Observations of people familiar with or from Dubai can probably give you a more detailed and correct response.

Al Yaquob vs. Maze Tower

ACC is faster than the Al Rostamani Pegel

It is not B&W. Those are insulation tiles, the real sandy color stone-like cladding panels will be put over them.

The first impression I got of this at first glance was; a gaudy version of the Big Ben without the clock dials.

Al Yacoub must have reached about 240m: the top of "poor" Burj is almost totally hidden now, viewed from SW
