This one will have some spire, or just the crown?

That's the open question, but the close-up below could solve it: if this is a red beacon light and a lightning rod on top of the fins, this should be the very top of Mag 218, and no spires will follow. Btw. the white ornament of the crown is quite flashy, so Mag 218 doesn't need spires to be recognized IMO.

Here's a small render of the original plan.
If the two spires are going to be dropped from the final product the height should be about 250m rather than 275m.

Agree - Mag 218 appears complete here. Compared with Marina Heights, this spireless tower looks like only 240-245m to me.

Btw. what do the arabic symbols on top tell, right of "Mag 218"? Just a name translation, isn't it?

Very slick looking tower. As fun as it is to see all the cranes and construction on this block, it's good to see a newly finished tower.

Hi guys. Thank you for sharing all those good photos, thanks to them I was able to do a nice model of the tower . You can check it out if you like here. Also if you are interested in this hobby, have a look into the "Scale Models" section of this forum.

Yea, I thought the 275 m height in the skyscraperpage.com diagram was with the spire only.

I added today (16/May/2010) this news:

MAG Group hands over AED450 million tower in Dubai Marina

Dubai-based developer completes 66 storey MAG 218 residential tower – all 555 apartments now ready for residents to move in



The MAG 218 residential tower, built at a cost of AED450 million and consisting of 555 apartments spread over 66 floors, is now complete and ready to be handed over to residents following the official opening ceremony yesterday (Saturday 15 May).

Commenting on the handover, Mohammed Nimer, CEO of MAG Group Property Development, said: “We have maintained a consistent vision, communicating transparently. We have stood by our strategy through thick and thin which has underscored our commitment to our customers and our confidence in delivering our promise.”

Almost 90% of MAG 218 tower was sold out within months of its 2006 launch, with many investors initially paying an average of AED750,000 – 850,000 for a one-bedroom apartment. Today, despite falling prices over the past two years, the apartments have still appreciated, on average by at least 10%. Indeed competitive rental returns can be achieved due to the realistic original selling price.

Due to MAG Group’s strategic pricing, more than 70% of the owners are end users clearly keeping speculators at bay. The typical profile of residents consists of young professionals in their early thirties and to date MAG Group has not received any cancellations whatsoever.

“So far we have not received any notices’ of cancellation, which in the current climate is quite remarkable. However it does highlight the sustainable demand for quality mid-priced accommodation,” said Nimer.

In terms of service fees, again through MAGme the property management arm of MAG Group, rates are very competitive at less than AED10 per square foot per annum.

“This which compares favourably with other developments in the vicinity,” said Nimer.

Full-floor show-apartments located on the first floor of the MAG 218 Tower were opened in June 2008, so that owners could check out the quality of the interior finish, plus other interior fittings such as lights, built-in kitchen units & white goods, wardrobes and bathroom fixtures.

“Frequent online photo-updates were also posted on to the MAG Group website to further reassure overseas investors,” added Nimer.

The tower, which comprises 333 one-bedroom apartments and 222 two-bedroom apartments and six retail outlets, comes complete with 572 covered car parking spaces and an outdoor Olympic sized swimming pool. The top five floors feature a full glass exterior, which afford spectacular panoramic views of the Marina, Palm Jumeirah and beyond.

A dedicated recreational facilities and community floor houses a state-of-the-art gym, event and dining hall, TV room and an outdoor terrace.

The residential tower is strategically located close to all of the facilities in Dubai Marina and only five minutes’ walk from Dubai’s Internet City and Media City. The tower also forms an integral part of MAG Group’s development strategy to construct competitively priced buildings aimed at the mid-range market and appealing to Dubai’s middle income families.
