How the hell can you say that!!!!!!!!!!! The clock is what gives Al Yaqoub its personality and makes it different from everything else in the city. Without the clock, this looks like al attar, making it just another blocky tastless and boring building on SZR.

+ 1000

Al Yaqoub Tower (with the clock) was that kind of towers that I don't like, but that have such a strange (but interesting) personality that I would wanted to see it builded in a place like SZR. No clock, no personality, no interest, no tourist atraction, no nothing, just a tall tower in front of another like Khalid Al Attar.

And I'm sorry about that.

I agree completely, maybe not atractive for what it was, but still different. But I will wait till the stickers come off the cladding to see. There may still be a gem hiding underneath, (Not that the original was a gem, just different).

It should. After weeks of regular floors rising, I think the core has risen one more level as well. It seamed higher today in relation to the top completed floor plate. Columns for the next one are up as well but because of the protective netting they use at the side, is difficult to understand if there is any set-back or if the next floor will be the same as the one below.

... so no clues yet if the top part has been redesigned or not.

It's such a pity that they're not going to build the clock any more

The shape still matches with the render, atm I doubt that there'll be a total redesign of the very top. So now the transition to the assumed pyramidal roof is done, thus about +2 levels here. Finally Al Yaquob Tower is close to "supertalldom"...

I see the tower at around 295m now like The Torch and maybe Emirates Park Towers, not far below Ocean Heights, but ahead of Princess Tower, 23 Marina and Ahmed Al Attar Tower (in comparison with the other recent candidates to pass 300m in Dubai until the end of 2009).

Btw. interesting view in the last picture, to see the Rosewood Dubai complex together with the SZR panorama.
