Here it comes... PT has passed the 400m mark.

It's the 16th skyscraper project ever to do so, IMO, and - with Pentominium on hold and DAMAC Heights on flooding delay - will remain Dubai Marina's tallest for some years now. Well - in theory there'd be the chance to add some extra meters to the Marina 101 crown after a restart, but I wouldn't bet a penny on that.

Did you count the Twin towers in NYC. Because that would make it the 18th.

Wow, i've been waiting for the Princess Tower to top out for along time now. And now it finally has, . Thanks for all the great updates Altin, Princess, Imre and all the others who gave updates. I absolutely love the princess tower, it has to be by far my most favorite supertall in the tallest block.
Also can someone give me tips if this diagram looks right?
(Yes, I know I exaggerated the colors on top alittle too much. )

the top section above the penthouses (94 and above) appears to be too wide. otherwise looks good, nice job! a bit like the drawing from JIAYU Group (cladding).

Yeayy!!

Topped out, that's great, will probably be the second to last building to be completed in Marina, next to Infinity Tower.

Astonishing, how fast the crown is getting done now. It may be a bit over the top, but emblazons the tower and compensates the many repetitive floors along the shaft.

Now there are 9 buildings with spire-crowns in the Marina superblock, most of them around the ruling Princess Tower. And this is the last one - the missing towers don't have spires...

Yes... but I took the WTC and Petronas twins as one project each.

Looks great, I don't really like the tower block it's built in but I guess thats the Dubai style. I really like the spire also, great addition to Dubai!
