They cut the Index because the building blocks the view. Just marketing.

Seriously, I am actually quite amazed by that photo.

I generally tend to stay in the Sheffield and UK areas, we often get comments like ' Up to nine floors - it's looking abit dense now' or 'whoop..whoop seventy metres'

You mean tallest completed tower? In Dubai or worlwide? Tallest completed worldwide is still Taipei 101 and in Dubai it is Rose Rotana, soon to be outrun by Almas Tower.
