Princess Tower (around 330m to 340m)
Emirates Park Towers 1 & 2 (around 320m)
Almas Tower (full height)
HHHR Tower (full height)
Al Yacoub Tower (around 320m)
Emirates Towers 1 & 2 (full height)
The Torch (around 320m)
Rose Rotana (full height)
The Index (full Height)
Burj Al Arab (full height)
The Address (full height)
Ocean Heights (just 300m)
Maybe 23 Marina (near 300m)
