The thread title has 30 floors but a count from the above pics gives something closer to 45 levels.

Please change thread. They are not topped out. If you look in the render, you will see that there are 2 little spires on each of them.

But the design has changed, compared to this one on dubaicondoproperty.com:


Even here the announced 30 floors can only be meant for the rentable office space IMO, without podium and the gap near the top,
otherwise I count 39 floors.
But the Park Towers have been realized yet bigger, like mentionned several times, also the podium is different.
So for me it's not 100% sure if the spires will be added - wouldn't be the first Dubai tower
that gets promised spires skipped in the end.

If the twins have topped out already, they could be about 180m,
and with future spire, they could easily make it to +200m skyscrapers, I think.

Btw. why not follow the Dubai forum thread, that has them at 2x46 floors? I'd go for these figures.

234sale gave the world some more zoomable Dubai panoramas on gigapan.org - thank you so much .
I couldn't resist to play jigsaw puzzle with some screenshots there... result:

So only a few levels of cladding needed to the top. Then we'll see what's the deal with spires.

Here these two gems amidst the "panorama to die for" by 234sale:

3 1/2 months since last update, but changes go rather slow. Northern Tower got a white helmet now.
