Are the cores' of Princess Tower and The Torch level at the moment?? The do look very close now - and if not then there can't be very much in it. Maybe one level of a difference??

The Princess has yet to catch up and at the moment seams to be a couple of levels down, but considering that the core on The Torch hasn't risen in weeks and the progress there has slowed considerably, maybe it will happen soon.

One thing is for sure though, considering The Torch has almost reached the roof level, once The Princess surpass it, there would be no turning back (as to speak).

It's very noticeable in these most recent photos from Imre that the core of PT is really starting to stretch out and over the other towers now. And it still has 25-26 levels to go yet!

This tower will not top at the 83rd floor.

It will take more then 6 months for the dome to top and a month or two more for the spire to be up as well, so don't expect any topping out before mid or late summer 2010.

Princess Tower is going to be fabulously tall and quite distinctive in its top section, but... what we are seeing so far in terms of finish is very much on the bland side. The context view of the tallest block as seen from the sea shows it has increasing presence but very little character.

I understand the facade may get some more colour or contrast but at this stage with those both lacking, the bigger it grows the more disappointing it becomes. It may well end up being a building where the most anyone can say is "hmm... it's very tall".

We have to wait until the completion so we can see the different characters of each building, which I agree they most of them have the similarity of being thin. But thats not all, the twists and the crowns are an important finishing for the whole image and it will propably look more WOW at the end!
if we want to look to the towers one by one we might be not very satisfied, but if all are thin, packed and tall, it might be the different story

No. Just around 278 meters tall.

The 82nd Floor (89th level) starts at 301.4 meters so when the core will reach the 81st floor then we can call this a supertall ... which means toward the end of December.
