Now that I get a second look at the shapes of these towers in the diagram. They all look eerily reminiscent of the shape of a big ICBM. Haha... except the two furthest on the left.

But this tower will be great.

it looks very poorly constructed. I'm surprised there hasn't been any major construction accidents in Dubai. Nice pics though

Perhaps even a better clue would be the fact that it says "Oct 28" right on it?
