An extra exaggareted, ironical reaction, because of such a stupid question! I mean, has he never heard about something like, holding a camera not straight and effect "leaning" stuff on pictures?

Emirates Crown is not 296 meters, more like 15 - 20 meters shorter. The spire was supposed to be double the height for the building to reach 296 meters tall.

Didn't know that. "Only" 276 (around) meters for the biggest building in Dubai Marina?

It's already pretty sick, but Dubai Marina is going to be awesome in few months (years) when all supertalls complet.

Because no one pays attention to reality. Which is probably why you hadn't heard about it. Just look at it and you can see they dropped the ball.

Because as Hollie said you hadn't paid attention to the thread in the UAE section when the spire was going up. I think a height of 276 meters was even quoted in some article posted when the tower was still under construction.

Let me guess, you didn't know that Marina Crown (the one between Ocean Height and Elite residence towers) was supposed to have a glass pyramid-like structure on top, right?

to be honest, I felt its shorter than what it stated for! but I beleived emporis and wikipedia and I should stop relying on those 2 sources!!
So that means even sulafa tower will be taller than the crown?!!

I worked out a little while back by scaling other nearby towers of known heights that emirates crown is 284m to spire
see diagram
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3640/...b91048b4_o.jpg
255m to roof
273m to crown
284m to puny spire

That's more or less correct, considering that (in real life) it seams to be at the same height as the 215m tall Al Seef Tower nearby.
