Actually the new height seams more then logical. The tower is already as tall as The Princess Tower and no roof feature is build yet. I have always wonder about that actually.

As for the panoramic elevator, I don't really understand why, the plot location doesn't give the tower place to breath to allow for it (I mean the views are restricted on all sides)

I actually find the "canyon view" the elevator would offer almost as impressive at the tower's location.

Dunno, it would offer ''great view'' of Elite Residence's aparments, no Palm Jumeirah view. The only view would be over Skydive Dubai

Is there a market for those apartments in these towers with no views?

That whole cluster is ugly. Each tower had worse proportions than the next, and sloppy, uninspired design. The only ones of the bunch worth talking about are the Infinity Tower and Damac heights, the latter having yet to rise out of the ground.
