Agree... but all the work on the inside or the podium doesn't impede the construction of the very top, does it? And the roofs appear as if the octahedrons and spires could be added anytime. Would be fine if this was done soon: I'm sure that the top of the EPTs will look more beautiful with them!

Six weeks without update for such outstanding twin towers?
Guess the reason is the slow pace: there're only some bits of new cladding, in relation to the long time.
After all the connecting podium is slowly taking shape (and you see a few building workers there ).

This is the time when we should worry if there is any redesigning and the top section might be gone!
Lets hope not

Already Value Engineered according to Multiplex Source.

Spires have gone / srunk.. Like the Islamic BAnk Finnancial Towers

These towers will still look great without the spires if they go that route. I'd rather no spires than puny ones like HHHR Tower.

But let's hope that these "crowns of thorns" won't make the top (or, to be more precise, those light-coloured top pieces that might be useless now)... the size of the cranes would allow to carry up another features to the top, like those octaeders from the rendering.

And if Emirate Park Towers should be cropped to the actual 320-330m, the tops should appear differently after full cladding at least - I don't like the as-is state there, which doesn't fit to the elegant rest of the buildings.

okay... all in all I like it really. Especially on a nightview like the following, taken by 234sale from the top of Ubora Towers.
It's fun to navigate through his zoomable panorama on gigapan.org, from which I took this screenshot picture.
Seems there's more inside work done in the right tower:
