They made a lot of progress on the floors since 234sale's last pic (9/27).

Indeed, 5 more slab floors, about 4 new cladded floors and 3 tall floors on core, up to lev 80 or 81 ain't bad in 16 days.
The recent top floor is going to be the last floor with orange cladding according to the model, I think.

Those kitchen tiles look exactly the same as JBR kitchen, looks like something out the 1970s, not exactly a slick "Elite" design

From what I saw today, the building seams to have reached the supertall status

Same developer right? - guess they got a good deal on buying in same tiles etc for both towers, more like Clone Residence than Elite Residence was seriously thinking of buying in, superb render vids etc but this has put me right off.

From outside the Princess one looks like it might be quite dark inside with the small tinted windows and that internal kitchen window is plain ugly. I like the fact that Ocean Res has clear glass balconies and big windows and great lobby but then the layouts aren't ideal and as I'm looking for one to live in it has to be right...

I think i'd have to see the layout in reality like from these pics as read too much heartache on reality vs plans like over on the Tridnet Grand Residence thread with the photos vs plan sketch comparison

The windows only look small from the outside, but all the windows go floor to ceiling, which I like a lot. Most of the new towers in the tallest block have floor to ceiling windows nowadays.

Of course corner rooms will be brighter than middle ones.

Elite Residence has gone up a couple of floors. You can see the difference counting from the mechanical floor. Eveytime I walk by their concrete pumps are running.

Obviously you've never seen a place with central air conditioning and pipes running all over.

I wish we had such nice kitchens in the Princess Tower. Look at ours below - no comparison against Elite. ;D




...I guess somebody went for economies of scale and volume discount big time!!

Those kitchens are horrible! How can they put that in a brand new development? It seriously looks fresh out of the 1970s... The wall tiles and the cupboards especially.
