"It's made on borrowed time and dirty oil money. "

I think the last figure I saw for Dubai was only about 6% of their income was from oil.
That's why they're trying to diversify into tourism, and other business.

From the looks of the last picture, the spire looks built to its full height. We can probably call this one topped out.

Either the scafolding is being removed or the spire is jacked up, cause the top of it is now visible. Probably the former.

great shots imre. yes, Torch is now tallest resi tower in world but NOT offically until its opened. its surpassed 322.5m Q1 by 15.5m.
Q1 was completed in 2005, so i guess sometime this year 2011 will handover the title to Torch. then i think 2012 will be 414m Princess towers turn. then 2015 its 516m pentominuim!!

So Torch is finally prove as tallest topped out resi!

I bet that the status change happened some weeks ago - but now some hiding layers of scaffolding have come down.
