This will be the worst tower for views. Its surrounded! Princess Tower, Elite Residence and Ocean Heights will block the view of the sea, Marina Pinnacle, Sufula, Marina 101, 23 Marina, Pentomium, Marina 106 and Mag 218 will block North Easterly views towards Burj Dubai and SZR. only to the SW is the view unobstructed, and Infinity and maybe Damac Heights will go up leaving that big space ripe for a supertall prestige project in the future. The Torch is the last place at the Marina I'd but an apartment.

Not correct. All the views shown below will remain for Torch owners, even when those towers you mention are completed.

No tower will ever go between those as there is a dual carriageway on the road below between the towers.

There is an Atlantis palm view from the pool deck and hot tub.

Even the marina view will remain between the 2 proposed 60 storey towers for MST for the plot in front, if that ever goes ahead in 5 years time.



The entrance to the marina arcade shopping centre will be opposite the base of the Torch.



The Torch has a great location.

The tram stop will only be 100m from the tower to take you to the Marina mall or the Walk and beaches and the metro to the Burj Dubai within walking distance. Water taxis will also take you to the Marina mall and gourmet tower.

Also marina phase 1 area is next door

Meanwhile, the oversize technical floor has been done, so let's go for the upper third of the floors!

Even though a part of the view is going to be blocked, it's still great. I'd love to live there.

Awesome work Dubai Addiction! Which render do you use? This podium you made for the torch looks nice! I also made a model of the torch, but i had no idea, how the podium will looks like...! Creative! But I see you build it after the real model. But this model have one mistake. In reality the first mechanical floors are before the setback, not after...
