Three new levels on top in August, level 73 visible... the core reaches high up to the range of Ocean Heights, Emirates Crown and Infinity Tower. Elite Residence will be the next u/c supertall soon:

About another 15 or 17 floors to go! Not so far from the top now.

That area is insane dense!!! All those craper rising up... really amazing.

I just noticed something odd on the last pic ... number labelling mistake between 67 and 68 or is there a mezzanine level!?

Now more recently... 9 floors cladded in about 5 weeks, one more floorplate (but it's service floor 60) and 3-4 new core levels, at least 76 should be u/c now, if my counting is correct. So the top part of the tower with taller floors must've started. The two last visible core openings already appear bigger to me, but that might be an optical illusion on the following picture.

Now the first of the tall upper floors are clearly indicated on the core, which must be lev 77 or 78 now. That's +2 from 8 days before, while floorplates have entered the upper third and got +1 level (62nd floor). Cladding progress is again faster with +4 (53rd floor).

With the setting suns reflected in the neighboring towers, the few pieces of uncovered orange cladding in the lower part don't contrast that much.

Here Elite Residence seen from The Torch, somewhere around 70th floor.
The tower will soon pass the 300m-limit and also Ocean Heights to the right:

The protection layers have been stripped off above the almost finished base of Elite Residence.
The streetlights gives a reddish impression, but Princess Tower declares that it would be rather golden.
Now at night, new green neon lights shine from the front and back balconies of every 2nd floor... maybe it's still light effect testing.

The design and color is too garish for me. But I guess if your name is "Elite" Residence, that's kinda what your going for.

think the golden color effect is more visible on this one. I like it.

the green lights at night must be testing or something. you can see an electric cable running on the outside of the balconies connecting the neon lights for the time being.

It looks better during the day. But still looks cheap.

Okay, here some day pictures made from Palm Jumeira and just posted on http://www.skyscraperlist.com. Kudos, 234sale!

Visually, Ocean Heigths is only a bit ahead, so Elite Residence now seems to enter the supertall club!
