One thing is just common for the all Marina u/c supertalls: visible progress on top!
In the case of Infinity Tower, there are now pillars, belonging to the roof section.

Thanks for showing us some podium works Imre. I was wondering for long time already when they will start fixing this broken coastline fragment.

The work on the cladding has stepped up nicely. Is the cladding stainless steel or cheaper aluminum?

Stainless steel is never used extensively on cladding. It's too heavy and expensive, inserts here and there yes, but throughout no. The most common cladding material is aluminium ... but even that is being replaced more and more now with composites.

This tower is no exception.

Never say never. Beekman Tower in NY is stainless steel. Of course that's just one tower amongst thousands in the world. So yeah, it's pretty rare.

Nice tower, best in Marina, the rest kinda suck in my eyes.
Especially those brown sandy color almost commy block type buildings. Jezus that makes me sad. They are lucky it doesn't rain that much in Dubai or they would have been dirty already.

I want to know why so many people despise Dubai and want to see it crumble

From pictures it looks splendid and I hope some day I can get the chance to visit

Unless the top two levels would be some super-doopey penthouse(s), the regular floors are done.

This tower looks dangerously close to the water.

I don't about the tower itself, but the site was definitively to close
