[QUOTE=spectre000;41638662]I think the progress on this one has been fairly steady. The core did shoot up quick. Constructing the full floors naturally take much longer. Comparing this to Al Attar isn't even close.

Progress fairly steady? Yeah, stedily slow. Ok, so it is alot faster than al attar. And I do know that floors take longer. But compare it to the Torch of Infinity Tower, and 3-4 floors in 2-3 months is slow. I think that they are low on $$$$$$$$$ because Princess is also crawling along. If construction continues at 4 floors in 2 months, thats 24 floors a year. Thats almost 4 years to completion which would make a completion date of early 2014. But if progress speeds up, you might be able to knock a year of two off that completion date.

You clearly know nothing about construction.

1. the core shot up months ago, and can only go so far without the rest of the superstructure.

2. The complex business of constructing the podium has been completed.

3. The raising formwork for the superstructure was completed at the end of July.

The first few floors may be a bit slower, but when the construction workers get the step-repeat process of building the floors sorted this will shoot up.

So far its been as fast as anything in the Marina.

Infinity may be faster, but its got a 2 month head start (core rising above ground) and is also something of a prestige project, and being fasttracked after a years flooding delay.

Oh, bullshit. It's slow. Lets face it, with a lack of funds, it isn't going to rise that quickly. It was started around the same time as marina 101, and that's almost 30 floors up now. I'm not saying it won't speed up in the future but it's slow for now.

Yeah, I printed out a paper that showed a picture of the tallest block about 6 months ago or so(give or take a few), and both the torch and princess tower were equal in height at around 35 floors. Now (correct me if I am wrong), I think that the Torch is around 75 floors and Princess Tower is around 60 to the top of the core. Since both Princess and Elite Residence are being built the same company, it is safe to say that they are low on funds, and therefore both projects are slow.

Core still the same, but slab has moved up one level. This could get a bit faster paced now, as the regular floors have started, I guess.

Nice diagram. Looks fine to me! It would be nice if you keep updating it during the entire building process.
