Why are you sorry to say? It's just your opinion and no one cares about it, so there's no point apologizing.

That photoshop was done a couple of years ago from a UK forumer (forgot the name). He did the same before with a Dubai Marina pic.

BTW it is up on the 61st

So another 15 floors to go... 15fl = 60m


264+60 = 324m


Roof of lv76 is 328m aka. the completed height... No kidding but as i mention in the past before, I still think this building has the maximum lvl of 76 and not 86...
