Why so pessimistic? As for the facades towards the smaller tower: before March 18th, cladding had stopped right below that oversized floor for weeks, but now there are at least 3 more, with different glass pattern... compared with Vision Tower and others in Business Bay, that's okay for me.

And meanwhile, the concrete skeleton has risen in good speed: +5 floorplates = about one per week.

I count 48 core-floors above parking levels. On the floorplan in posting #1, there are 54, including mechanical floors... so 6 more to go?

Btw. on that plan, the first mech floor is no. 20, but in reality they seemed to put it at no. 27.

There's a great Ubora Towers update on skyscraperlist.com. Lots of interior pics and video there, too.
I see 53 full floors built above parking levels, so main Ubora Tower should be topped out soon:

In the meantime Ubora Tower has made it to the roof, it's almost topped out (only shaft should get a bit higher IMO).

double post alarm... okay, I'll write a comment:
- what a night view!
- seen by day, the tower looks a bit cropped on top right now. I'd prefer to go on a few floors and bring the curved lines towards a more pointed top.

Some pics by 234sale, who visited site and tower. More on skyscraperlist.com.

I'd say that Ubora Towers have topped out - don't think that the facade will end with fins that reach higher:
