http://www.constructionweekonline.co...may-go-higher/ This is a construction week article with a photo from the top of the Marina 101, you can see that its equal with the spire of the Princess Tower. Plus another 30 to 45 meters on the crown.

That photo is at a lower level than the spire of Princess Tower.

It's a pity that there's no photo from the angle where both towers would be equally far from the camera

Nope, that's a different tower (not a supertall)

I heard today at ctbuh.com that a new tower on the marinas south end is under way and is planned to reach 53 floors and exceed 600 feet. Can't believe the progress Dubai is having with skyscraper construction.

600 plus feet = 185 plus meters.

According to the renders this tower looks like it will be around 650 feet or 200 meters tall. Which means it will be another great edition to Dubai's skyline

200m is not impossible, but it will be close. Al Seef tower, it's neighbor, is 215m tall but has a small spire and pyramid roof.

Gotta love how the first thing displayed on the signs is always the number of the building permit. As if they want to reassure people "Hey, the authorities are totally okay with us building this".

Good to see they haven't just turned up and started building without permission, though. Never thought that would be an issue in Dubai either, but for places such as Dhaka I would have been more weary of construction sites without such signs.

It will be a residential tower, so the floors are lower. It will be hard to reach 200m if it is not a luxury residential tower with 4m floor height like 432 PA
