If you're going by the latest pic then the current height is more than 333m, because Imre said they added more to the top since his latest picture.

From what I've seen that seams to be a correct assessment.

Yes, a long way to go: on the official model from page 1, the top structure looks much taller than on the drawing above.
On the other hand, sometimes spires get put up much faster than floors and different roof features. For 23 Marina, they could add the slanted parts later IMO. Perhaps some spire parts are laying around the construction site?

Today, about the time you where making that post.

I take many more images for my own site these days, though still moderate the UAE section.

Maybe I should add a paypal donate next to my signature

Here's an older pic, from 2010-08-08 by Mariana Lasprilla on flickr. 23 Marina spire some meters smaller than above:

Time for a little update with a nice panorama from Palm Jumeirah, though not much significant seemed to have happened
with 23 Marina. Some more scaffolding at the spire, some more glass below...
I wonder why they clad the sides so unevenly.

Yeah, that's crazy. I live in a 30+ story high rise with 3 elevators, even then it's not always quick getting an elevator.

Just think when one or two of those elevators goes down for maintenance...
