According to 234sales pic and the heights AltinD posted, it must be around 84/85.


Are Emirates Crown and Princess measured from the same grade level?

Emirates Crown is not 296m high anymore. That was for a design with a much longer spire, they built that little dinky one instead. Emirates Crown is around 270 to 280m tall and I recon Princess Tower is between 290m and 300m right now.

Yes, here's an older render of Emirates Crown on Emporis. The whole crown is bigger there, too.

On Princess Tower we still don't see the oversized technical floor 79 revealed, most likely it's still covered under the top formwork = 294m, with top of formwork a little higher.

@scalziand, your estimated number 79 looks also like an average floor, so presumably it's not.
Another thought: the pano picture clearly uses a fisheye lens, so comparison is difficult with them, because two lines aren't parallel, but convex.

(You were quicker, malec, so I've modified my posting)

if AltinD's heights are correct, service floor in core box now. all floors seen on 234's nice shot are same height. and that means the service floor is still not built.


edit: @ 234Sale: this was my 234th post

They use the official plans and figures, afaik... and while precise details for rentable area can be claimed, nobody forces the architects or investors to correct an overall height downward.

You can always give them an email telling them that the real thing didn't follow the original design. They always want to improve the database so they might go researching for the actual height.

Yes, stuck on the 79th (service) floor

So floor 80 to final will be different. However I think they don't need modify the core.

For some reason, that pic gives more perspective as to how tall these towers actually are. They look much bigger there than any other pics I've seen of the Marina from that angle.
