Please Imre invite me!

You are really lucky, I think you will not have any building in front of yours, so you're going to have a perfect view of Dubai Marina. Great photos.

Actually there are 13 regular floors left plus another mechanical floor on top. Also there's the spire which needs to be built before we can say topped out.

Strange the difference in perspective you get from different viewpoints. From that photo, it looks like it's now the tallest in the block. Looking out from the 34th floor of Al Seef 3 (I think that's the top of Seef 2 in the bottom right of Imre's picture), it looks like it's still some way off.

It's fake, but a nice one.
The repetitions of some floors at The Torch are suspicious. So there's about a dozen levels 2 much. Only photoshop is faster than The Torch itself...

The first supertall in Marina will be the Ocean Height, which would also be the first supertall to top out and be completed ... even Princess Tower and 23Marina should reach the supertall status before the Torch, but will be completed later.

At the current rate the torch will be way ahead of princess tower anyway, since that has slowed down to 1 floor every 2 weeks.
