True, but they've begun focusing on building the floors out instead of raising the core. It'll resume rising once the floors catch up. No need to worry.

...and the twisting will go on to infinity...
A nice soundtrack there would be Chubby Checker's "Let's twist again". Or Dire Straits' "Twisting by the pool"

too bad its located in the only marina area, where no matter how high it will look, it will never have the enough attraction. 6 or 7 neighbour buildings r taller!!

The plot on which Infinity Tower is being built sticks out a little from the rest of the marina I think... That would make it stand out much more

It will definitely stand out. There is only one plot next to it, and that will remain empty for at least the coming years, because the project scheduled to be built (Damac Heights) is cancelled.

Damac height really was an astonishing project, I doubt if any replacement tower in the future will be as good at all!

Tall is not everything. Elegance counts too.
