Its imo amazing that the emiratis didn't go for the worlds highest twin towers with these, the Petronas have a roof height of 378m and a total height of 452m, so add a few more floors and a larger antenna and voila.

Nice work with these twins, but it looks like there still isn't any work going with The Skyscraper plot.

For the first time, one perspective (the one of the right tower) shows the setbacks of the top like in the renders. So the roof could be at full height now, with the two prisms and the spires above yet to come.

Great pic 234, looks like the podium is progressing well and so is the tower! Lots of work to do however, I don't expect these to finish before 2012.

Here are some pics of Emirates Park Towers from today. I apologize that the quality is terrible. I took them with an iPhone and not my camera. Hope you enjoy.

Almost. The spires remain to be added to the towers.

It's maybe fully cladded early 2011. Finishing two towers of that size will take at least another year.
