The renders show taller "fins" at the top. But I'm starting to wonder they haven't been redesigned. The tallest building may no longer be a supertall, or at best, just barely.

another amazing shot!

Should the thread title be changed to T/O since the towers won't be getting any higher?

I wonder if the tallest is still a supertall? It doesn't look like it.

Why you say that? it look very tall actually!! I think the view of all 5 building completed together gives the feeling of not high enough!

I didn't say they don't look tall. The difference between ~299m and 305m isn't going to be much different. What I was getting at, is the final design doesn't match the renders. The "fins" at the top do not reach as high as the original design. So the tallest tower may no longer be a "supertall" IMO.

I had my doubts, what with the top fins. But looks like another thousand footer for the UAE.

It's true, that the final design doesn't match the renders, but the "shorter tower" look taller than 218m. So the tallest is still 305m, but the shortest could be 255m or so...

The other 2 towers are the Nation Towers.
Between these ones and the Etihad Towers the Adnoc Corporate HQ (342m) will start to rise next year (works are now ongoing in basement).
