This is true, I think... and one crane has gone up even more! See these photos from skyscraperlist.com .

Don't be so sure about the cladding. Based on my observations from the highway, I might have a theory, but I have to go up close to prove it right (or dissprove it)

All the Dubai Threads are so boring now...I guess the whole building boom was canceled/hold, and all the migrant workers sent back to India.

What about these five rows of white "dots" between the windows above 15th floor, that had started here in August? Would be time now for some final cladding, but from the renders, these parts should be cladded dark, not pale... but perhaps it's still covered with protective sheet.

All in all one can't deny that there's no superfast development in the Marina block at the moment... but this is just a wild guess, isn't it?

I think it actually looks kind of cool the way it is now. It's like an enormous, black monolith.

No matter if we like the actual look or not...
...these two photos from skyscraperlist.com both prove that Marina 101 is now the tallest around.

from Palm Jumeirah (anyone getting bored about that panorama? ):

I love the view of the supertall block from that angle. These towers look great.

It's amazing to think this is Dubai's second skyline at the marina which is about a 15 minute drive from where Burj Khalifa is.

To the left of that pic was sappose to be marina two with just as many condo's, and the NHT would of been there as well.

Rite behind those building's is the palm island, what a location.

Fanfare!
Here's the topped out concrete part of Marina 101! I'd say it's 380 meters tall now. All formwork has been removed, and only the crown is missing.
A change of the favric design distinguishes the double-floor penthouses at floors 97-100, maybe this won't be visible when cladded.

And now 101 Marina seen from The Torch, somewhere around 70th floor.
Kudos to 234sale for another great picture thread at skyscraperlist.com :

Btw... there's no crane visible on Marina 101 here... but one is behind the tower, and the other one must be on top.
