For reasons unknown to us, the tower was on hold for many months. Below the link to the respective thread.

"Keep in lane". Don't look at the skyscrapers.

To me, HHHR looks definately around 190m, and calculated by floors, this could work: on the renderings, the spire appears to be as tall as about 12 floors, and so the average floor height would be 317 m/84 floors = 3,77 m (and thus roof height 272m + spire 45m). If my counting is correct, the 51st floor of the core has been started, and this should be about 192 meters.

Anyway, it's almost impossible to keep the eyes on the road driving down Sheikh Zayed Road . Even here towards the Northeast, there are many impressive skyscrapers going up, like the Hotel JAL / Acico Twin Towers, that are even further up now at circa 200-210m, almost hiding Park Place on the recent pic.

And can somebody tell what's going up in the background? That's most likely another +200m-tower, too...

I think this building will turn out way better than on the renders (which look kinda crappy). So to the HHHR Tower!
