Looks like the (now thinner) core has been extended by another level...

...I'd bet some bucks that Ocean Heights is not only the so far tallest in the Marina superblock now, but also the first supertall there!

Still one of my favourites in Dubai. Looks awesome and the progress is going so fast!

Nice vis-à-vis of two 300m-giants, The Torch and OH... who's best at the moment?

Formwork on very top has vanished... so the core has topped out, most likely at +300m. But I guess that the highest point will be at one of the curved "wings", not in the middle.

Correct ... don't think the top of the core reaches 300 though.

Oh, I forgot about that model. The ray-like fins look very tall here, overtopping the last floor by almost 30 meters! But hard to believe that OH should currently stand 280m only, in relation to its neighbours.

Why not? All the others supertalls are around the same height, and OH doesn't seams taller then them (23M, PT, TT)

@biyadoo: this model is two years older - and to me the 2009 one looks like a modified design with a different and taller crowne. Or is is just the different angle?

@Altin: but on the tallest block diagram from Nov 9, Culwulla has 2 of them at +300m, plus 23 Marina at 293m, and didn't receive any critical response in the supertalls of Dubai thread. Anyway, The Torch / Ocean Heights have appeared taller than 23 Marina / Princess Tower (which is definately over 280m) for a while now.
Btw. what I meant with "neighbours": OH is at least 26 floors taller than Tamani Hotel (207m) next door IMO, so this adds up to about 300m, too.

On the other hand, +30m more than to date for Ocean Heights will surely look fantastic... no matter, if the tower ends at 310m or even further...

I already told Cul that the diagram is wrong. None has reached 300 meters yet.

As for Princess tower, check the respective thread cause I have posted the (official plan) heights of each floor to be completed, till the 81st and if Culwulla wants them, I can give him the figures for the other floors as well.

Regarding the structure at the top of the building: I think you're right, in newer pictures and models the "fin" in front of the tower looks taller (in Imre's picture from 05/October/2009 this is the side facing towards us). It also seems that almost certainly this will be the highest point. And they haven't started building it yet (right?) Or at least it is not at the stage to be separable from the main structure.. Anyway, it should be interesting to watch the progress in the next few weeks...

Obviously I've checked that thread, and your objective figure there are really helpful (PT with corebox covering floor 77 up to 285.2 m and probably floor 78 up to 288.3 m on Nov 13... and at least the Torch is taller than PT).

Do you have official plan heights for the other candidates, like Ocean Heights, too?
