Wow, quite a bizarre structure on top. I guess these highest 'fins' are the highest as in the renders, so only the spire will follow on top.

Yeah, but very cool! These two towers are sure going to stand out in the crowd. Wonder how much one of those fins weighs?

Great towers! I have a question... Why are they painting the concrete black? I see it at more towers in Dubai (maybe other cities too) Is the paint a protection layer or something?

Bizarre is the word... makes me think of dark forces like the first Nazgul in Lord of the Rings On the renders, this roof section appeares much lighter and more transperent than this. Might look better when cladded though.

Maybe you're right, but the crown doesn't look the same to me as proposed, e.g. these three "thorns" to each side, and there's only one big setback. Perhaps these changes could give a reduced height of 365m?

Apparently the bases for the "diamonds" have been made on top. What material will be used for these? Steel or aluminium? If so, concrete structure would've topped out now.
