A most attractive design. My only objection is the dumb ass name: Ocean Heights. What does that mean? Since when does the ocean have heights? "The Ocean Waves" ... "The Ocean Tides" ... "The Blue Ocean" ... "The Ocean View" - these all make sense. Land can have "heights" because there are hills, highlands, ridges and mountains. Therefore you can say "I live in Kishinev Heights" meaning you live in that part of the city of Kishinev that is on higher ground and (presumably) overlooks the rest of the city. Why not call it "Ocean Hills" which also doesn't make sense??!!!

Thanks Imre for the pictures

I heard from Erik who lives next door (Marina Crown) that usually there are lots of workers on site and they are working day and night. I hope today was an exception. However, they seemed to have slowed down a bit, maybe they started concentrating on the floors rather than the core at the moment?

Regarding the name, I think it means "heights overlooking the ocean", and I actually quite like it.

Would it really be put on hold once it's at such an advanced stage? I guess there could be a few reasons, building costs, labour shortage, redesign... or god forbid some sort of structural problem. It is weird that such little visible progress has been made since the last update especially with eye witness accounts of many workers on site unless they're trying to fix something which has gone wrong or prevent something heretofore unforseen. Just my two cents...

You answered your own question..although its more on the Persian Gulf than it is the ocean. So basically its in a part of the city that overlooks the ocean..err Persian Gulf.

Agreed! It's graceful and, fingers crossed, will soon grow into a wonderful tower. I just wish we knew what the hold up (if any) is.
