I also noticed today that the distance between the top of the core and the floor plate was smaller, indicating progress on the floor plates (the central core didn't seamed to have risen, but mine is just a quick observation).

Thanks Skyscraperlist 234Sale for the pic:

Princess is up one more!!!!!! Now the 84th is visible - I've checked in Photoshop to compare the distance between technical floor and main scaffolding: 5 penthouse floors are done. Hanging scaffolding has uncovered the 80th completely. Progress speed is not bad at all.

Nice! Thank you for the pictures! I like that pattern right below the fat penthouse floors.

Current building pace after the reconfiguration (penthouse section) is about 9 days per floor. Good progress in my view.

Last visible main slab is 86th, last visible core is 94th, which is the last regular penthouse floor at around 350m "altitude".

4 more floors to go for the core, but each one will be almost double height (ca. 5.6m per floor from now on - including luxury penthouse, playing floor, and three service floors) before concrete structure is topeed out at 375m. Steel construction dome and spire will make up the rest to top at 414m.

That block is really stunning indeed, thanks for the photos. I hope Dubai eventually recovers and fills-out the skyline in between the major clusters.

It's the Goldcrest Views tower and it's not a hotel.
