Thanks to 234sale, here are close-up of Marina Pinnacle's top, seen from The Torch.
First part of the crown (or top level) still not completelly finished, and according to the renders, the vertical element to the left with spire should follow at last...
perhaps in 2011.

Yes, there are workers on top:

Still lots of cladding work to do on the side facing Marina 101, whereas Marina Pinnacle looks almost complete from the other direction (nice family portrait with "mummy" The Torch and "daddy" Marina 101 btw. ). The location of the anticipated spire is hidden, but there's a building maintenance unit on top now.

Once again the Marina supertalls steal the show, but here Marina Pinnacle features the long anticipated top.
There's a roof skeleton and even the tiny spire, with only a small crane left.
So I'd conclude: topped-out!

Here a closer picture of Marina Pinnacle - cladding is almost done, I'm waiting for the complete unveiling like partially to the right.
No idea why they've scaffolded what I suppose to be the building's eponym...
or am I wrong and there's no pinnacle on top (yet)?

There's an article on gulfnews.com from 19 Dec 2010, with Taha Mohammad, CEO of Tiger Properties, announcing:

"Tiger ready to hand over new Marina Pinnacle Tower to owners"

But most of the tower's future residents on SSC aren't convinced and some call this a big lie in the Marina Pinnacle thread of the Dubai section. On 6th of December, they've received an invitation letter to visit their apartment in the period between 1st(!) and 20th of December, and obviously there are many complaints about the quality.

I'm seeing this in the Torch thread too. It seems a lot of people are disappointed about the Dubai Marina in general.

Seen from the outside, Marina Pinnacle draws near completion.
The tiny spire is up, and I think we could change the thread title to T/O.

Here the upper 2/3 of Marina Pinnacle, seen from Marina Heights (two pics).
Still there's some protection foil on the facade, also the roof below the spirelet doesn't look completed to me.

Those podiums just look awful to me. Is it me or are there just a few windows in there? It's gonna be way to dark and uninviting in those lobby's.

Any idea when it's going to be 100% ready for handover?

Don't worry. Nobody lives in these buildings. They are just for show.

Here's the MP top, perhaps with the smallest highrise spire in town.
Still some facade elements are missing right above the top floor, I think.
And nobody's responsible to detach those rests of protective sheets at last?
