Those are only the 6 elevators serving the top floors, and they are clearly located on one side of the 'core', suggesting that there are also 6 on the other side (for a total of 12) but that do not serve the top section.

This thread looked like it needed some photos, so here are some I took a few weeks ago on the 26th September. Hope they help!

Spire scaffolding has been removed, though the spire hasn't increased - more than 50% are still missing. Maybe they'll soon start with the surrounding crown instead and add the very top later:

From how it looks on the renders, I'd say that the top part of the spire is something that might be jacked up.

I'm not digging the exterior on this one. The white "lines" are such a mish-mash. There is just no symmetry to it. It has the look of three seperate buildings stacked on top of each other.

It would look better once the cladding is completed, but the building has indeed 3 sections.

One must not forget the residents. Top floor appartments are much bigger, so don't need many small balconies. It wouldn't make sense to have the same shape throughout all floors, regardless of looks.

I actually find the design fabulous as it is - not that anyone cares.

No dramatic change at 23 Marina (there's again some scaffolding on the top)... but I love the atmosphere on these pics.

Indeed... six different supertalls closely packed in one picture is worldwide unique so far.

Let's go for a walk around 90th floor, according to the maker... in fact this must be the double-size last tech level below the roof and above the 3 penthouse floors.
