Great building!

Well, some renders present a white glowing illumination on the very top, so perhaps this dark tip of the spire could be part of a beacon.

The lower part of the spire reminds me of an oil derrick... I'm not sure so far if it fits to the rest of the design, but this is better than just a tiny needle.

The render shows the base of the spire to be cladded so the final result may not appear as spindly as it does now.

Agree, In general I do not like needle-like spires. They are often eye-sores.

But it's no shame to have such an enormous 72-floors-building on the supertall list IMO. Even without spire, HHHR Tower is at least 280m tall, and the Dubai supertall veterans (Emirate Towers and Burj-Al- Arab) have tall spires.

280m is Skyscraper (200-299m)

Supertall is 300m or more.

Of course - but there are way bigger "supertall-cheaters", that need more than 20m from rooftop to make the list. Just think of Shanghai Shimao International Plaza or New York Times Building... or Burj Al-Arab with the highest floor at around 200m.
After all, these are still figures that don't say all about impact and nothing about design quality. Under this aspect, HHHR Tower can't beat the latter, but this here is a great enrichment to the Sheikh Zayed Road panorama - concerning looks AND height.

Spire Cladding

The base of the spire is indeed going to be cladded. It will be covered with aluminium cladding at the lower half fame work (27m). Top 20m is a box section.

Got that from one of the project engineers.

Well, this is SZR North area is one of the best city skylines IMO, because It is the most crowded area with supertalls and skyscrapers T/O in the world!
Emirates Towers 2, Rose tower, Index, the address BD and HHHR with total 7. coming also the Yaqoub tower and Alattar. Thats for supertalls.
Not to mention at least 15 skysrapers around.
Certainly with all that height around, the HHHR will not give the most noticeable height image even with the spire!
If it was in any other city it would have a chance to be a land mark, but in Dubai!!
