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.
But actually on Imres recent close-up, the corebox is up at lv 76 and 77, isn't it? So Princess Tower should measure about 286m

First of all it's 'floor' not 'level', you have to add '+7' to get the level number

Anyway:

Floor 75 up to 277.9 m
Floor 76 up to 281.5 m
Floor 77 up to 285.2 m
Floor 78 up to 288.3 m
Floor 79 up to 294.0 m (service floor)
Floor 80 up to 297.7 m
Floor 81 up to 301.3 m

I posted up to the 81st floor because there is when the supertall status would be reached.

I have to check if I can find where the setback starts but if it is soon to be happening it would be starting with, or above a service floor so it should be either 79th or the 80th.

Only a decade ago the city had 800,000 inhabitants already and 1 completed supertall (Burj Al Arab), with 2 others (Emirates Towers) under construction but already having reached that status.

The setback starts with the 80th floor. I guess there would be a core re-configuration as well which might slowdown the construction, so it's not clear if the tower will become a supertall this year.
