TV coverage on Dubai Media on Tameer (starts from 11:00min) and a few shots from the community area on the 97th floor (starts from about 18 min). They could have shown more panoramic views from the top in my opinion, but hey... I got the hat on already and therefore have that view all the time...

New Mini Models of the two Tameer giants just coming back from City Scape in Saudi Arabia. They will be shown in the Tameer stand in the Mall of the Emirates if anybody wants to take a closer look. There are a few units left available for sell directly from the developer, but only very few sea view, which are amazing, so better hurry...













Sorry for the bad picture quality taken with the little mobile phone camera at the Tameer office on SZR, where they models were unrapped quickly to check if they've made it back from Jeddah ok.

In both towers. Maybe 5%-10% from what I saw, but no guarantee there. Those are repossessed units I believe, where the investors couldn't make installments, and didn't try to sell in the secondary market to get more of the money back. Their fault, not very smart to wait until they get taken away after countless warnings due to defaulting. The goal was to have all units and investors up to date with payments when the towers are completed, which I think is doing all other owners a favor.

WTH are they doing here? It will be a shame if Elite Residence gets topped out faster, as the current progress suggests.

At least the superstructure has been announced complete by Tameer at constructionweekonline.com:

2011-07-05

"Developer Tameer Holding Investment has announced that main contractor Arabian Construction Company has completed the super-structure at the 414m-high Princess Tower, part of the ‘Tallest Block in the World’ in Dubai Marina. The super-tall tower is on schedule for handover in 2012.

Princess Tower is now in its final stages of construction, and we look forward to the delivery and handover of this project,” said Tameer president Federico Tauber.

Princess Tower comprises six basement levels, a ground floor and 100 additional floors housing one-, two-, and three-bedroom luxury apartments and two- to three-bedroom duplex apartments, while the upper floors house four-bedroom penthouses, offering a total of 763 apartments.

The total built-up area of the project is 162,580m2. Facilities and amenities range from a five-star lobby, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a fully-equipped gym, sauna, steam and Jacuzzi to a special occasions hall, billiards hall, table tennis courts, electronic games hall, satellite facilities, children’s nursery and parking for each flat. Eight retail spaces have also been provided on the ground floor."

While Downtown Dubai is graced by the 828m-high Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, the other end of the city, Dubai Marina, is host to an equally impressive record: The Tallest Block in the World. Here a bunch of super-tall towers are clustered together in a single block, ranging from 250m to over 500m.

Looks like there wasn't much visible progress in the two months that I was gone.

you're right. there is not that much left to be done on the outside. cladding has been progressing at normal speed. the crown will make a big visual impact, but it has another 6 months time to be completed, so no worries there. I reckon it won't take long once they start to assemble (like Elite crown, which goes quite fast right now) but it shouldn't be hard to put it together in time. the challenge will be completing, connecting, and snagging 763 apartments. wholy cow, that's a lot of units and customers to look after...

Not a bad result. The first shot in particular is great. I'm trying to imagine this same setting, at night, with all of these towers completed and fully lit up. It'll be amazing! Just imagine the views from PJ!

Kone's EcoDisc motors propell a bank of 13 elevators up and down the Princess Tower.

by Gavin Davids on July 11, 2011

Rising over 400 metres over the Dubai shoreline, the Princess Tower in the Dubai Marina is an impressive sight to behold.

With a total built up area of approximately 162,580m2, the tower will hold 763 luxury apartments over a 101 floors. In June of this year, developers Tameer Holding said the tower’s construction schedule was on track and that the superstructure was now complete.

However, as impressive as the tower undoubtedly is, ensconced within its superstructure is another equally impressive, if unheralded feat of mechanical engineering.

Travelling the vertical height of the tower is a bank of 13 elevators from Finnish firm Kone.

Installing these elevators has been no easy task for the engineers, says Frank Fernando, the product manager for Kone Middle East.
