Bird's eye view from Princess Tower core level 75

Tallest residential building past half way

by Greg Whitaker on Nov 16, 2009

Building work on the Princess Tower is now past floor level 65 and core level 75, according to developer Tameer today – but the project is a long way from the planned 107-storey topping out height.

However, the project is on schedule and – as previously reported – the contractor says that it has so far stuck to the original cost projection, with less than a 3% overrun.

On completion, the developer claims that this will be the tallest residential building in the world – though in fact the project is to a degree mixed use as it is planned to have a mix of shops and ‘recreational clubs’ across the 37410ft2 footprint.

Commenting on the progress of the project, Federico Tauber, president of Tameer stated, “The Princess Tower once complete, will be a significant landmark in the Dubai Marina area and the UAE, and we are committed to ensuring the success and timely delivery of this project.”

Earlier this year Tameer told Construction Week that the project was planned for completion in August 2011.

It will be completed before Pentominium so it will be worlds tallest residential for a short period.

Now Princess Tower has far outgrown Emirates Crown to the left, slab has risen, too. If it keeps goin' like that (and if there's no major reconfiguration of the core right above the service floor), the Princess will already wear the "tallest of the tallest block crown" at the end of '09, IMO.

Since Sep 13 news from www.worldarchitecturenews.com, posted on the Pentominium thread, a spireless 516m tower is state of affairs. But there are some 2 more years to possible change plans for the Pentominium top once more...

Btw. I don't think there has ever been doubt about the Princess Tower's little 15m-spire while u/c yet.

Can't see from these latest photos, but the core must be on level 80, or even over by now huh??

Finally another pics from a top floor of The Torch (too good to be posted in the Dubai subforum only). For the first time, from there we look up to the core of Princess Tower, that tops the Emirates Crown spire by at least 15 meters.

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

So, it the core at the service floor now? I presume it is since the main tower is catching up fast on the core.

Top at service floor 79? I guess so, too. Would be easier to tell, if there were a floor label in the 70's on core, instead of an outdated "52" here.
