Thanks for the update Imre, I was really looking forward to another update.

In the last 13 months, 80 floors are constructed!!! Really an incredible amount, what a speed! Floor 95 is finished, so about 7 to go before reaching the top floor!

the thing that makes these resi towers look so tall, is we arnt used to 350-400m towers with only a 40m width. normally towers this height are 50-60m wide.but office require larger floors while resi only need small plates.

So true... enormous height-width ratio. This might look even taller when cladded; now it's just a dark elongated cuboid.

On top floor 99 has begun, only a few more left. For the first time, it appears that Marina 101 could've taken the "tallest of the block title" away from Princess Tower with +350m.

I think the thing that makes them look so tall is that they're really tall.

Today was a clear day and I was looking at the Marina from a distance of some 15 km and Marina101 is definitely taller then the Princess Tower. It even seamed like the top regular floor was as high as the top of the central core on the Princess.

The differences in height with the 23Marina and The Torch on the other hand were ridiculous.

Four days with no height increase!

Haha well I get the feeling, viewing the pics, that they will soon start on the cladding with full speed, in order to dress this undressed beauty very fast!

They'll have to start with the cladding to keep themselves busy because they're running out of floors to add.

For sure: looks like the outer walls of 98th floor just get built, and the central formwork could be as high as the 101th floor.

I think those last floors will need more time than the previous ones, as there's a slight setback between floors 99 and 100 on the sign render, but the main work will be to improve this black skeleton to an apartment building.
