The Ocean Heights roof section is pretty complicated... advanced geometry!
Looks a bit odd now with these sudden changes from floor to floor and with that now uncovered irregular concrete cubus, but surely this will look much more appealing when cladded, like the rest of the building.

Btw. there's an oversize level on top now, I guess this is technical area. A facility like an observation deck or function room for tenants (or even public) on top would be a surprise.

Does "concrete frame completion" mean "overall topped out", or are there a few non-concrete parts of the crown higher up? If not, the T/O is a bit surprising, as the renderings looked as if the overhanging side towards the sea would stick out. Maybe a distortet perspective had been used to make the render picture appear more dramatic.

Also the model presented at cityscape 2009 with the tall fins doesn't seem to have been realized... (otherwise Ocean Heights would become taller than 310m anyway).

No matter, this is a favorite tower of mine...
...and let's change the thread title: Damac says there are 84 floors!

The fin was not suposed to be concrete so it doesn't mean it will not be there ... actually it would be stupid if it wouldn't.

Not topped out. Just because the concrete tops out doesn't mean the whole tower is topped out. We saw that with burj dubai

The Cityscape model shows the core to be more angled upwards, as do the original renders. Also, the model appears to be a bit taller. The glass fins around the top don't appear they'd overtake the core.

The concrete core just doesn't look right to me. I think it might have some more work (height) left to go.

???

While the shape is beautiful, I personally think that the cladding looks cheap. Bummer

I second that. The design is great, but that dull blue color looks cheap.

The two beams on top should be a good sign that the missing crown above the highest concrete slab has started.

No, the crown still needs to be completed.
