Come on, it's a 395 meters corner plot building, What's with your insisting that somehow it will become invisible and hidden behind non-existing or shorter towers (except The Pentominium)?

Great to see the progress on the top and the cladding after the bad phase a while ago!

Hircon repossess 10 apartments in 23 Marina

Company will complete the Dh1.3bn project in Dubai Marina by September

By Parag DeulgaonkarPublished Saturday, July 24, 2010

Hircon repossess 10 apartments in 23 Marina. (AP)

Hircon International, a Dubai-based real estate developer, has repossessed eight to 10 apartments in 23 Marina, a Dh1.3-billion project in Dubai Marina, and expects to complete the project by September, a top company executive said.

“We expect to get Dubai Electricity and Water Authority connection by August and then start working on the hand over of the units. Although there were reasons beyond our control, which led to delays, the building is now topped out.

We are working hard to hand over units as soon as possible,” Darshan Hiranandani, Director, Hircon International, told Emirates 24/7.

The developer has repossessed eight to 10 units only of investors who were not inclined to meet their financial obligations or eager to talk and work out feasible solutions.

“We had kept some units to rent, but those were sold and these [repossessed] units will now be rented out. We are not currently planning to sell them.”

Despite the law allowing Hiranandani to take investors to court and seek compensation for failure to meet obligations, he has no plans to move the court to seek compensation from investors whose units have been repossessed.

According to Decree No(6) of 2010 dealing with the Executive Regulations of Law No(13) of 2008, a developer is not required to sell at public auction if he completes more than 80 per cent of the project and may elect to terminate the contract and retain up to 40 per cent of the purchase price.

Spanning over a height of 380 metres, the 90-storey 23 Marina tower has 288 apartments and three penthouses on the top of the tower.

"Topped out"? Mister Hiranandani needs to have his eyes examined.

They meant topped out as in the roof is complete. Not topped out in height. This is very common in the industry.

Surprise, surprise... so maybe 23 Marina suddenly has become the tallest u/c building in Dubai Marina!? Current leader Marina 101 looks around 370m, whereas the spire will bring 23 Marina to 395m.

Indeed still a long way to go before topping out, just take a look at this render and you'll see.
