It's a desert area, it's not supposed to have trees and greenery.

But the green is much more appeasing to the eyes than the vast desert.

There is and will be enough greenery around. The Dubai Marina Phase 1 (6 towers), that was completed in 2004 or 5, is not green, is lush green.

hmmmm i guess it will be alhamra with the no.3 position since both are 414m princess towers has a spire whereas alhamra doesnt so the height to the ceiling would go to alhamra and spires are not counted

What's the point of who has the tallest top floor? Are these two competing against each other in any category?

Princess Tower would be the tallest building in "The Word" if they had built it on the Lebanon Island instead of those tiny beach huts...

lovely, i think a nice revolving restaurant would be nice up the top what are the top floors just below the crown going to be used for? seems bit of a waste if they are all just penthouses and apartments

the topmost accessible floor will be a community floor (97th). what better use can there be?

Getting late approval for a revolving restaurant there is virtually impossible. Otherwise, this has been thought of and tried, don't you worry. I think even the developers would agree with you.

if there were only 5 skyscrapers a year to be completed in Dubai it might have been a different story. But if all of the hundreds of developments were allowed to make changes to their plans every now and then the authoroties would go even more crazy.

Yes indeed a restaurant and skybar like the one at the top of the marrit hotel in Dubai marina would be fantastic.

but anyway the looks from the top will be amazing will be soo cool to look right at all the spires of the other towers and the whole area

You can't get the liquor serving licence, for a venue located outside a hotel.

What color/material is the podium cladding going to be?

answer:
they've already done one small section facing the torchm tower. It's polished stone (granite?) matching the color of the greyish-siverish cladding above.

Excellent choice IMO.
