I like the reflective cladding when looking up. And wonder how the round top will be, when finally the mesh will be gone.

I mean, who designed this tower? The LEGO company? This has got to be the most unimaginative design for a tower this tall in the history of mankind.... Unless this is a poor spoof on Aldo Rossi (RIP)...

In the last pic, I can understand Norman Foster's comment that there are a lot of buildings here but very architecture!

Finally Khalid Al Attar gets crowned! The steel top is easier to notice zoomed from a distance then down from the road...
It took me some time to get aware of Geralds gigapano, to make snapshots and edit them. The slant part surprises me, compared to the render.

They can add a couple of meters on the spire, to make it a supertall!
Sometimes things we make don't make all sense!!

BTW, this is now the 63rd tallest in the world!

Anything now higher than 300m is in the top 50!

Yes, I hope the scaffolding won't last too long. Most likely this spire will be clad.

When we take a look at the render on the board from posting #1, we can see that the erected spire matches with the lower part, but there's a thin upper part as well, which is still missing. So I suggest that Khalid Al Attar Tower is NOT topped out yet, but up to 275-280m only!
