I really don't like this. I am looking forward to the cupola but that's it. It's awful.

So the central core is on the level 57. I don't remember if they start labelling from 1 after the Podium or the Ground and the additional 6 podium levels have been included in that number.

It makes a difference and if they have done 56 + 7 = 63 in total, then only 38 levels and the dome of top are yet to be done, so in one year time they should be working on the dome or completed it already.

Princess Towers' cladding with the 3-floor pattern is quite easy to count:
..10 core levels app. at the top (cp. 9 on Dubai Steve's pic from 22/April/2009)
+41 levels of structural floors above the podium parts (39 visable plus 2 under formwork)
+ 6 podium levels
----
=57 levels

So I'd say that the labelling starts from ground level
