In this pic Marina looks much smaller, and seems like there are less buildings. I like the other angles better. They make it look more clustered. BTW is that pic taken from Palm Jumeirah?

how high is grd level above sea level? sometimes this height gets confused with actual height. thus the 345m height? is torch site about 7m above sea level? 345m-7m=338m.?

Final height will be 345m. CTBUH says it Emporis says it wikipedia says it. So definitive it will be 7 meters higher than this thread says! Change to 345m plz.
