Not only grey - it's almost getting orange on the right side there due to the dust.

Both the Infinity and Princess tower will be somewhat more shiny / mat silver once they've received their scrub after completion. you can already see how shiny the material really is when the sun is reflecting in it. Compare the color of Infinity on the lower part in the above pic with Princess (pretty much the same). on the princess tower it is best visible on the round balconies in the penthouse section, since most other cladding is flat and doesn't show the reflections as well. Infinity shows the reflections better due to the twist. Plus, those panels towards the top have been installed quite recently and therefore are pretty clean still.

Funny to see all those scaffoldings around the steel beams.

Has the seawall been restored to the way it was before the breach occurred?

You're right, Imre. Cayan have just announced a new completion date of July 2012, six months late, citing "late customer payments and some defaults". Worth waiting for, though.

Or even in thin air (right top).

Must be quite scary being there if you are afraid of heights, but the view would be priceless.

This is a sneak preview of the Light effect for the Infinity tower.

The sample displayed so far is a slow, smooth color change, including white. Very cool.









Thank you CAYAN for making your tower shine in the Marina, and for the great show!!!!!! The Night Skyline absolutely needs it.
