There are a number of them, however the one to first do it is a different tower, 414 meters tall.

World's tallest?

Nice photos, it's always interesting to see construction of buildings and how they progress.

Everyone likes to express an opinion on the architecture and design of skyscarapers ... this one looks okay to me. Nothing special. Not as sleek or dramatic as some of projects described at this site. It is a conservative, stately design and will not offend anyone.

Now ... the tallest residential tower in the world? What about the Chicago Spire, 150 floors, 2000 feet/610 meters?

ChiSpire will be tallest once completed but as it has yet to reach ground level and has to go another 200+ metres beyond 23 Marina's final height until it's complete this will be tallest res for a while.

When this building loses its title as world's tallest residential, it won't be to the Chicago Spire, it will be to Princess Tower. This building will be done at least a year before the CS, maybe more.

I still believe that Princes Tower will be completed earlier.

Wouldn't be surprising if they approach the speed of Rose Rotana.

Damn yes, I forgot the Princess. She will deservedly take the crown for a short while.
