No sign of the clock but compared with the last pic, an additional spire-like structure is added on top. Also some kind of cladding has started on the lower pyramid part.

I'd love to get up there to the temporary outlook right at the peak to enjoy the panorama!

This little spire on top only add some 6-8m to the tower... I'm not convinced that this give 330m overall. But Al Yaqoub Tower should've made it to the supertall category for sure.

It looks T/O for me.

Good progress for this typical Dubai-style skyscraper!

The tower is not taller then 320 meters

Eleven 1,000 feet tall skyscrapers for Dubai! Incredible. And probably six more by the end of the year.

The problem with Dubai is it's very much a case of quantity over quality, and the buildings like this show that.

If all these supertalls were Pentominiums or Infinity Towers I could understand, but they're not. It's a shame that a place with such ambition in terms of size didn't have more ambition and regulation when it came to the designs. There are some fantastic ones among them, and it's sad that some let the overall aesthetic down.

There are some great towers in Dubai and also some really daft ones, and this is one of the daft ones.

Burj Khalifah, The Index, Emirates Towers, Burj Al Arab, Almas Tower, Ocean Heights, the Pentominium, Infinity Tower,... I see more well designed 300m+ towers than bad.

On the other side we have Princess Tower, Marina 101, The Torch, Emirates Park Towers (both of them), Al Attar Tower, Al Yaqoub Tower, 23 Marina, The Index (which I find terrible, looks like a cold war era building: efficient for space and money use, not a dollar spent in design).
And how to forget the HHHR Tower, that looks like it came out of a bad sci-fi movie.

Don't get me wrong, there are towers in Dubai that I find absolutely gorgeous, but these I named (let alone others already completed ), are just so hideous, that they steal away the attention from those who deserve it.

It's as though Miami and Las Vegas had a baby, put it on steroids, and called it Dubai.

They both have some beautiful towers, but neither of them will come to mind when talking about "artistic skyline". A missed opportunity, since Dubai had the possibility to draw everything from scratch.

Emirates Park Towers and HHHR are great and there are others on that list that certanly don't deserve to be labelled as bad.

It's a shame their aren't many more projects in the pipeline. After 2011 or 2012 I don't see much chances of anything new. Still its been an incredible decade for Dubai.
