I think the top of the formwork is over 300m now.

Which one's true? If it's "Floor 81 up to 301.3 m", then malec is right, as the upcoming floors 80 and 81 are covered under formwork. But compared with the figures on the plan of the top, it must be floor 82, I suppose... so still under 300m.

Princess Tower can't be very far off that magical 300m though. Any day now this will be officially a super-tall!

Thanks, Altin.
I've wondered about the problem with different floor numbers (dome as the upper floor at 99 or 100, while thread title says 101 floors) and just realised, that the labelling on the tower has skipped a full floor! Here on Imre's pic from 30/June/2008, the first label is a "9", but it's fixed onto the 10th floor (1 entrance floor+4 low parking floors+5 floors with windows above podium):

So the dome will be floor 99 only, though it should be floor 100 (cf. plan of the roof section in your post 241).
And if the windowless transition part to the regular floors is counted as a floor, too, we get 101 floors overall...

Good that there's the taller service floor now, as evidence that labels and height data fit together. So formwork top of Princess Tower is already around 300m.

No, no ... G + 100 = 101

I rechecked and I had skipped a floor, the 85th that's up to 315.9m

Corrected for the 2nd time

Ah, that's it... so 84th floor isn't oversized. And the Ground floor isn't counted, following the British numbering convention. But please stop bashing yourself now...

Next floor has arrived: formwork up to floor 83 / 308.6 m.

At the turn of the year, Princess Tower is most likely 2nd tallest in Marina, ready to overtake The Torch already in January IMO, unless the roof of the latter jumps up in the next few weeks.
