EP 07 is the best looking tower of this bunch, but I don't think people should praise it's originality, because it's inspired by the Calatrava Towers in Valencia.

That's just insane. So that makes to my knowledge

1 planned 1km+ tall tower (Al Burj)
1 800+m under construction (Burj Dubai)
2 towers over 500m u/c (Burj Al Alam/Pentominium)
5 towers 600+m or more (this thread)
1 550m tower proposed (dancing tower)
1 460m tower approved (Damac Heights)
1 400m tower proposed, (Lighthouse tower)
Princess Tower @ 414m and Marina 101 @ 412m.

That's 10 buildings with a height greater than 500m being planned or constructed, 4 buildings over 400m and altogether 14 greater than 400m plus the dozen other amount of projects in the 300+ region. I may be wrong and there could be more or less but not even a country barring US/China can boast those figures.

ETA Star launches Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill designed towers

Property developer ETA Star has launched VERDE Towers, designed by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill.The two towers have been designed to comply with the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) programme, to achieve a Gold rating.

The VERDE towers will make use of wind turbines, photovoltaic solar hot water, energy efficient lighting and a grey water system in order to achieve its sustainable goals.
Adrian Smith, whose previous work includes the Burj Dubai, said: "It's been a privilege to design these towers, as one truly believes it is a first step towards leaving behind a greener, healthier world. The energy saved by the project is equal to the planting approximately 600,000 trees or removing 680 cars off the road."

The towers are to be located in Dubai Maritime City. < now we know where these great towers are
