I've never heard the 'crown' to have been included on the tower's name. The first name we heard was Al Ameera (Arabic for The Princess)

Yeah, I remember reading it somewhere, but it might have been in an early plot map with somebody just confusing with Emirates Crown. Not sure so I took the line you are reffering to out of my post.

The funny was the Marina Crown, turning out crown-less at the end

... well, the spire of the Emirates Crown turned out shorter as well.

Great update... there's scaffolding for last floor below dome, so finally the tower will become taller again!

the dome hosts a chiller and is not accessible to the public. the last accessible floor (97) is a 360 degree view community area currently declared as playing floor, which I find is an excellent architectual decision.
so the dome will simply serve as a dome - for looks and adding height.

Also it makes for a good hat protecting against too much sun...

Agree. Time for a repost of Altins repost of floor infos here. Though some details must have changed, this is still a good overview.

I wonder how the BMU will be fixed in the end... The new crown layout has slots - perhaps the cleaning telescope can be extended right through the slots, thus sits inside and is invisable most of the time? This could preserve the crown from being messed up by this huge feature.

The BMU seams to be fixed on top of the core, which suggest there would be only one, or perhaps two of them? Depending how the dome would be enclosed, IMO the arm of the BMU would extend through the openings or perhaps part of the pannels covering the dome slides sideways. Asimilar approach is used on the Park Place in SZR. The BMU is hidden on top behing an covered opening that slides down when needed, to reveal it.

enourmous structure, impressive and it looks good (the way they construct it)
im not really a big fan of the style of architecture used..

Looking at the way that guy is installing the bath, there won't be any access at all below it for future maintenance.
Anyone living there had better hope that the waste pipes don't leak or block up too badly.
