Thanks for reopening a thread about Ahmed Khoory Tower, Stephan23!
So another tower with quadratic footprint is quickly rising on Sheikh Zayed Road, but one that looks more "classic" than many others. Might turn out nicely!

Interesting: the render on the signboard presents more or less black glass, except for 5 floors at the top. Now, there are cladding samples with about 8 different blueish colors, only one of them appearing as dark as on the render. Let's wait and see which one will be used...

Yes, thanks again to Stephan23 for creating this thread (and lots of others yesterday and today) and updating some of the current threads with the latest construction progress from Dubai. A lot of work by Stephan and much appreciated!

I've been watching the Ahmed Khoory Tower thread in the Dubai Forum since its creation and am pleased to see the tower hasn't been affected by the current economic situation. We don't know the height in metres yet but I think it may stand out in the SZR skyline and turn out to be quite sharp.

Good progress! Slab is about lv35, the core about lv38. This could become another shiny glass tower for SZR.

Btw. are there any infos about the final height?

This one has slowed down, I think... formwork has only moved up 1,5 floors in one month, and the facade below looks almost the same.
