At the moment there's a nice view to Ocean Heights' aslope top from the SW of Marina. Unfortunatelly, it will be mostly blocked in a few months by Elite Residences.

Wow, "nice view" is an understatement! Too bad about the crane being in the way in that shot, maybe 234sale will take another shot from that view when the crane is facing in a different direction.

To me looks like they photoshoped the plants, however the pictures looks real and taken with a long exposure and a HDR-type of effect applied

All the star-shaped lightbeams in all three pictures are exactly identical, too.

Also, what's with the padded walls in the first picture? Does Ocean Heights double as an insane asylum?

They are all sales brochure renders.

The actual halls look like this:

All of these pictures are created with 3D software and a so called ray tracer. Probably 3D Studio Max. They're not even top quality renders - you can get much closer to reality look than this. Definitely not real pics, that's for sure.

Finishing touches take place at Ocean Heights with interiors now under way

United Arab Emirates: 5 hours, 52 minutes ago | PRESS RELEASE

Damac Properties has completed the final three floors at its Ocean Heights development at Dubai Marina with public area interior finishes also coming through to completion.

The company has released interior images of the lobby, gymnasium and other common areas within the 84 storey skyscraper and has also confirmed that plans are on schedule for end of year completion and handover. The interior images are now available for customers to view on the new Damac Properties website.

Snagging works have been completed to the 65th floor and electricity has now been connected to the site with electrical testing and commissioning now in progress.

Ziad El Chaar, General Manager of Damac Properties, said:

"We are delighted to report that progress at our Ocean Heights development is well on track and that we are about to complete all the external works and then turn our attention to the interiors. Construction of Ocean Heights has taken less than three years which is a tribute to the fantastic team effort on site. With up to 30 different contractors on site each day and at the peak of construction around 2000 staff it has been a huge co-ordination exercise and we are especially grateful to our main contractor Arabtec and Consultant ECG for their project management skills."

"We are working hard to ensure that every last detail is completed to the highest standard and that the building rightfully earns the title of our flagship project when it completes later this year. We look forward to the day when our customers will be able to see this fantastic development for themselves," he added.

Landscaping has already commenced for the gardens and grounds at Ocean Heights with equipment for the swimming pool, spa and gym currently being installed. In the individual apartments kitchen cabinets, bathrooms fixtures and interior lighting and accessories are now fixed.

In addition to the completion works taking place at Ocean Heights, on-going interior progress is also underway at Damac's other main sites in Dubai including the health club being installed at XL Tower at Business Bay and final painting under way at Business Tower. Meanwhile at Smart Heights at TECOM a substation inspection is pending and at Lago Vista at IMPZ the tower crane has been removed with exterior construction work now 98 per cent complete. Furthermore customers have now started to move in to the first phase of the company's Emirates Gardens development at Jumeirah Village.

Mr El Chaar added, "We are making great progress at all of our sites in Dubai and this is in line with our commitment to hand over at least six of our projects in the next year." ameinfo

Another epic sunset view from Palm Jumeira to Marina, captured by 234sale at skyscraperlist.com.
And the externally finished Ocean Heights shows its most beautiful face.
