So I guess they are building the podium separate around the main tower instead of having it has a special structure, so they can shoot ahead with the main floors while they work on it at their leisure. Clever idea to save time. This is probably the fastest rising tower in the world right now.

I just wonder about one thing, the streets around this tall towers block in Marina are normal 2 lane ones! I cannot imagine the traffic problem will be around these towers with this small spaces underneath when all are occupied?!!!

The main road between the Hotels and the towers (top of the pic) is getting widened.

Yes, it seams they are building the regular floors, leaving the podium for later as it happened with Al Kazeem Twin towers in Media City. Going ahead with the podium at this stage would have been impossible anyway, considering that they are using form work for the floor plates also (like Al Attar in SZR).

Anyway after seeing what ACC did with Rose Rotana tower and especially with Park Place that was build with reinforced concrete, I'm confident they will shoot up well ahead of the other supertalls in the area.

That is another tower. The Princess is the tower with ACC and TAMEER banners at the top.

oh ok thanks. I am just interested in how the highrise structures work and there is no better place to observe their construction than in Dubai. Do you or anyone know if most highrise floor slabs are usually Post tensioned or does using reo suffice?

According to the official website the Princess Tower will have 107 floors, not 101.

10 core floors though and the podium is not that big - but it will be impressive when complete for apartmnets with sea/palm views

... and out of them only around 90 floors are residential, the rest are parking and mechanical floors.
