There are at least three windows for a two bedroom apartment, so even if people are at home and awake,you can only expect one of them to be lit up. Then you have people going out, which in Dubai, especially among young professionals renting those apartments, is the norm, there are many who prefer privacy and use blinds and heavy curtains, which combined with tinted window glass, makes them look dark from outside, and there are of course empty apartments with owners prefering to use them as holiday homes for themselvs friends and relatives, or those who are in between tenants.

All the above makes it normal that big part of the lights would be off, heck, even in my midrise apartment building that I know is 95 - 100% occupied, more than half of the windows are dark. Even when I live my lights on, i can barely noticed it from outside (I keep my curtains closed)

Me and friends actually show surprise how many lights are on in the Marina

PS: Cayan/Infinity tower has indeed low occupany rate compared with the others, however it just opened and some work in the lobby and common areas is still ongoing and it is more expensive than the other towers around

One of the (many) things I love about Dubai's towers is seeing them lit up at night. If this building doesn't get a crown it will be almost invisible after dark.

More cladding continues to the top, more evident it becomes that the crown is DEAD, at least in the planned form.

They have cladded the corners where the crown was supposed to start in a bulged form

That's so weird, kinda like what happened with 1WTC.

What's the buildings height without the crown? Still very tall I imagine (380 meters?)

I have positive news! I took the time and emailed TAV the company that is building Dream Marina 101 this is what he said:

Thanks for your interest in the Dream Dubai Marina Project.

The highest point of the tower, which is the crown (yes, the crown will be there), is at 425 meters. The fabrication of the structural steel for the crown have already begun and will be erected soon.

Please feel free to contact in case you require further information. As TAV Construction, we will try our best to help as much as we can.



Best Regards,

I think if they weren't going to build the crown they would have removed the cranes by now.

Way to go Munwon! Nothing kills speculation like going to the source and asking.

Glad to hear that the crown is still underway! This building really needs its' crown. Now toss in 106 and the Pento and that area will be perfect.
