Islamic Bank Towers have a bewildering appearance... sometimes on first sight, they look like more than two towers to me, e.g. here, seen from the Dubai Mall Hotel. Growth of the left, taller tower isn't too fast. Central core should soon top out, but the left wing has way to go to peak out at around 230m, I think:

So only a bit of height is missing to the rooftop of the bigger tower, while the smaller one looks almost complete... except for the spire, of course! On the other hand, there's no crane left on this one. Did they skip (one of both) spires?

02/March/2010, Sheikh Zayed pano by Imre...
...IBT to the very right - no giant progress, if one can judge from afar... bigger tower now up to rooftop edge; no sign of a spire:

I see, I thought they removed that from the design. I thought they changed it. I'll change it back.

Islamic Bank Towers with spires? Looks familiar... oh, it's only Emirate Towers!
Although my snapshots may be a bit out-dated, there's not a sign for the planned spire addition on the smaller tower.
It's more difficult to tell for the big one here. But my guess: both got skipped.
