Looking back over the older updates, it is shocking to see the speed this is rising at. The cladding has been slapped on in no time.

i count 50 floors plus 5 podium floors they dont include, thus 55 floor plates high and then 4 more in core, thus 59 total? or 240m?
i think theres about 60 typical tower floors, so the main roof is just about reached going by render
after main roof ,its the the 30m high crown section and then 30m spire. simple yet classic tower design.

Yes the bases of Princess and EC are joined, so SHOULD be also the bases of Infinity and Ocean Heights 2, but there is an empty space between Al marsa and OC2, enough for a 2 + 2 lanes road and some sidewalks.
