Seems very complex to build the crown.
Even if progress is slow I'm glad they do it because without it would look unfinished imo.

It will be very tall with the crown!
And now imagine the 106 Tower standing next to Marina 101 with 445m, 20m higher than M101!

Offtopic, but take a look at Damac Residence at the sunset shot. The cladding is so reflective Imagine this reflelective cladding over the whole building!

What will they do to increase the height from initial 412 m to 427 m? The floor count is the same and the crown seems to have the same proportions as the original design.

You never grasp the grandeur of the skyline till you compare it with the lady walking on the beach in the bottom of the pic

This is off topic, but I noticed in the pictures that it seemed like they begun working on renovation of the torch, the torch should also be renamed. Great job by the way gabriel with that last picture you posted its cool and recent.

The only skyline, where a 393m high building (23 Marina) - 12m taller than ESB - looks average or even small next to it's giant neighbourhood

This skyline would look soooo great with pentominium, I cant stand it when buildings are left on hold.

You're not the only one frustrated of buildings on hold, especially pentominium.
But this thing won't be on hold forever, too much money was invested and the core is already at floor 29.
