Thanks for this pic from mid-level Burj Khalifa, that could help to estimate the final height of Islamic Bank Towers.

From which floor did you take the photo, Imre? The sky lobby at lv 76 / 261,3 m?

If so, the tallest IBT must be smaller than 21st Century Tower (268m), I'd even correct my older guess of 260m to Chelsea Tower size (251m) or even below.

By the way: in contrast to the towers, the low extensions (parking decks, I suppose) look raw and unfinished here.
keep looking upwards

Heights Confirmed

Office Tower - 237.21 m
Residential Tower - 215.66 m

If the spires had not been omitted, the heights would have been 288.61 and 257.06 respectively.

I think because of the GFC and a legal row between the developer and architects.

so what s the status of those towers now ? cause last week when touring DIFC i saw one of the 2 block of towers... they look absolutely superb !! and shiny...one of the best cladding in Dubai for sure

so what s the definitive name of those towers ?

and i don t know which one of the 2 clusters is on hold but the one i was looking at (from DIFC Damac twin towers side) looked as if they were completed already...
