Imre, thank you for the update!

Amazing speed! Topping out at the End of November?

I like the design of the tower more and more.

When i compare the height on Imre's overview of the marina with already finished towers and for example The Torch, i would say it around 300m right now.
So it's close to topping out...

I wouldn't call Infinity Tower or Damac Heights boring or tacky!

Neither Infinity Tower or Damac Heights are boring or tacky.

True. They've made fantastic progress on this one! Very smooth looking building and I think it fits in very well on that front line!

hmm... what I probably meant was, some towers that were being built alongside ocean heights... like the elite, torch and marina 101... i dunno but their designs aren't really groundbreaking and in some parts tacky... but i agree with all of you that infinity and damac heights have also some of the best designs if not the best in dubai...
