Yes, and maybe you could take some pictures?
Hope you enjoy it. I have been to Dubai a few years ago same time (Christmas) and loved it.
Would recommend visiting Madinat Jumeriah and Jebel Ali Golf Resort hotels. They really have good open buffet dinners (if you like unlimited lobster )
Ocean Heights, Infinity (just coming off the ground), Princess are worth seeing in Dubai Marina imo.

Indeed fast! Though started much later, the gap to 23 Marina for instance is decreasing, and "23" is now only a few more floors ahead. So Ocean Heights could well fit into the World's tallest residential tower race thread - at least if you take the categories tallest floor and tallest roof (on the other hand, it will be hard to catch the fast and taller Princess Tower...).

As you can see from the picture above your message, the core of Ocean heights is 2 levels ahead compared to the UC floors.

I thought this tower was meant to twist as it goes up but it's looking pretty much straight-up so far.

It doesn't twist. It has curves. Have a look at the renders. I think you are confused. Infinity Tower twists.

Maybe it will have to rise a bit further then before the curve/turn/twist becomes noticeable.

It is very exciting to watch this building grow!
It will be fun to watch in 2009 how this whole supertall block will change in a year.
