Seems like those floor numbering signs came out of nowhere!? Maybe the builders decided to help out all the skyscraper forum fans with their progress!

I wish more would do so.

The old render had more interest surface area-wise. The gaps were more pronounced. I suppose that had to get smoothed out some so that more people had the benefit of a sunrise or sunset. I don't know.

Plus, the old design looked a bit more like a lighthouse-- always a welcome sight from the sea. The new one kind of does too, but you have to use your imagination a bit more.

All the same, a very stately design and I think people will come to appreciate its understatedness when all the ooh-ing and aah-ing over the rest of the skyline has faded.

The entire complex will be linked by a rised walkway in between? Thats why each building was a strange base?

my bet is torch will become worlds next tallest apartment block late 09. beating 23marina and princess. mainly because its shorter then them so it will open first.
so it will always be in history books as once worlds tallest apartments. just like 21stC tower.
then i think princess tw willo reign numero uno for a year or so before pentominium will take over. until spire in chicago gets done.

I think, 1. Ocean Heights 2. Princess Tower 3-4. The Torch, 23 Marina

Why , Arabtec is the best and ACC is faster than the DCE

Exactly!
But I still think Pincess will finish first or very short time after The torch . You can tell from the progress!
