The pyramid on top is completed so we can very well say the tower has topped off.

It doesn't look like 330 meters tall though.

Agree! To me, this is like the big brother of neighbouring The Tower.

No extra height gaining feature on top of the pyramids? Then Al Yaquob Tower might fall short of 330 m ... but not much, maybe 320 meters.

There is no spire on top according to the renders/mock-up models.

Hm. Yea I thought I saw that too when putting the render next to the last construction image. It's just that I get notificiations from multiple members saying this is topped out. I'll change it again.
