Good question... as a 60 storey residential tower with small spire like on the sign, AKT could finally be in the range of 230m-240m, I guess.

On this Dubai Mall Hotel view, Ahmed Khoory Tower to the very left hasn't changed from last month... no new floors or cladding. Hopefully this presumptive halt isn't enduring:

Top out is not too far anymore: +5 floors in 6 weeks,
Core at lv 57, floors at lv 55... that's there the top part should start with the trapezoidal opening of the facade on renders. Some new glass, but cladding still stops below lv 40.

My guess: Ahmed Khoory Tower is about 218m now and roof could t/o at 235m, spire at 245m.

Recent panorama from Burj Khalifa. Ahmed Khoory Tower has gone up 1-2 storeys in almost 6 weeks IMO. Formwork is partly lower towards SZR, maybe that's due to the trapezoid setback of the top floors.

The following Ahmed Khoory Tower picture doesn't show progress IMO...
...perhaps the tower is ON HOLD. Or does any Dubai Forumer have noticed traffic on the site recently?

Looks like the V-shaped feature near the base isn't part of the structure, but simply a lamination that should be fixed onto the glass.

Now a little off topic, sadly the Rolex Tower thread has been archived already.

ROLEX TOWER a bit down the road...
...the finished entrance:

Also a great addition to night skyline
(Ahmed Khoory Tower hidden, the tower stands right behind)
