Nice speed at Infinity Tower. Already same height as Elite Residence Tower.

Hope they build DAMAC Heights, otherwise Infinity´s position looks so far from Tallest Block and gap is to huge.

I totally agree. Damac Heights is totally ill! I think that they will build something there though as it is marina front. And gray will still be awesome,even though silver is better.

I would like to know the answer to this too. The render here seems to show recessed balconies:

Hmmm, I think I can make out a couple such balconies here:

Look at the cladding for the third column (from the left edge) of windows on the second and fourth visible floors.

Maybe Imre can zoom in on these next week.

Wow, I make a suggestion, go to bed, wake up, and find my wish has been granted! Thanks, Imre. Great photos.

Those balconies are TINY. The doors can't even open all the way with the temporary guard rails there. I imagine that the permanent rails will be a little further out, maybe just enough for the doors to open. They should have made the doors swing inwards anyway. Maybe some of the balconies will be larger. Would love to see floor plans.

Maybe the balconies are just for show? If so, what a waste!
Very nice pictures, I'll keep myself updated on this one, it's going to be very interesting to see rising.

Like the bedroom "balcony" in my ex Vienna apartment: You open the door (inward) and the rails were not even 10 inches away. But that wasn't the biggest problem (pun intended) that bedroom had.

This is really a great Tower. Only problem is that it's being build in the ugliest city on earth.

The indented balconies will give texture to the facade, maybe that's the reason they've been incorporated into the design.

Interesting... few months ago, only the round core was sticking out, now floor slab has almost caught up, inclusive full cladding on the lower floors. Even the first metal window blinds have become unveiled now.

To me Dubai is like Miami on steroids. I wouldn't say it's ugly though with so many gorgeous buildings. It's going to be quite a place when most the projects/plans I've seen get built (the ultimate playground for the world's best architects). To put it another way, I wouldn't mind taking a vaction there.
