Good question! Looks like 72nd floor has started, so minus 6 to go
Marina Pinnacle got 1-2 new floors a month recently, it's over 250m now IMO and still no roof in sight...

Maybe someone could check out the construction sign or ask the staff?
On this thread's page 4, Krazy posted the sign of 4th August 2006. Has it changed? I know there has been a slightly different render later, but both include a similar top and spire.

Yes 1-2 floors a month...which is why its taken 3 and a half years (from a rising core) to build. All the other towers have raced past, I suspect the Pentomium will race past too!

Another floor on the way...
Yes, it's taking forever, but it just keeps rising:
8 January 2010 - 21 floors above the 3rd mechanical level;
29 January 2010 - the 22nd floor above the mechanical level is being constructed.

The AMEinfo.com website has a blurb from Tiger Properties dated 25 November 2008 stating construction had reached the 64th of a total of 77 floors. Imre's pic posted on 3 December 2008 shows the height as 3rd mechanical level + 12.

Based on 77 levels and mechanical + 12 = 64, then mechanical + 22 should mean it's reached the 74th level with three more to go.
Dan will correct me if I'm wrong!
NB.. nowhere can an updated render of this tower be found.
Here's an oldie: Night render. It shows the completed tower as having 16 floors + roof above the 3rd mechanical level.

The Tiger Group website has the height at 280 metres being 4 Basements + G + 4 Parking + Health Club + 3 Service Floors + 64 Residential Floors. That's 73 floors including the ground level with no mention of roof top mechanicals and/or roof feature.

So instead of 260m|66 fl maybe the thread title should be 280m|73 fl.

Has the tower finally topped out?
Any idea on a completion date
I had an email today from Tiger sending some pics which looked like they were on the top floor but hey - who knows with them!

Lv73 is done... and seems to have a different ceiling than below; the edge towards the viewer looks set back. Maybe finally the planned crown of Marina Pinnacle has started?!

Hey Zollern, I had overlooked your infos and calculations so far.
Good thoughts! After all, it's 77 floors (AMEinfo.com story of 11/2008) vs. 73 floors (Tiger Group website). Maybe the annoucement of 64th floor referred to the at the time higher core? The data given by the contractor of altogether 280m / 73fl sounds more recent and reasonable to me. So the roof should follow now, let's see. No matter if it gets even taller, I agree we should indeed change the outdated thread title.

I doubt , as I saw today they need minimum a year for finishing everything but I think the realistic handover date is end 2011 or 2012..
