Any idea how many floors GH2 will be ?
Maybe this helps:

Still 2 empty plots which can block some view:

1. hotel plot , next to the Habtoor Grand.
2. plot between the bridge and Infinity, if I remember ok that is G+unlimited plot.

Still nothing started there so you are in the safe position for a long

Yes, regarding project no. 2 it should not effect the apartments facing GH1 & GH2 but should effect the apartments that are 100% direct sea view, anyway I don't think this project will start or at least for many years to come

Birdview-panoramas have a special "wow"-effect to me.
And as construction is mostly done on top, these views often show the best what's going on... as long as the viewpoint isn't totally overtopped by the "newcomer" (and this will happen in a few months here).

Btw. the size of cranes still surprise me from time to time... here the core crane reaches +200m already, while Infinity Tower is just somewhere around 150m.

its really great how the core is going a few floors ahead of the tower. Not that this is a new method just its cool to imagine how the tower will look versus how it actually turns out!

Yes, great pogress and it looks like it will be an excellent place to live. Perhaps Select Group can take a look at this quality development and learn some lessons! Pigs will fly! These Select Group bozos cannot build a sand castle!

What happens to the building on the right side of this picture? Seems they didn't remove the protective film from the facade panels, correct??
By chance - many thanks, Imre, for pictures.
