Finally another Marina superblock pano, thanks to advlive.

Elite Residences surprises me once more:
While slab work is still around the transition to the taller top floors and cladding has climbed 3-4 floors since Dec 17th,
the core has grown about one more level - without leaving any more openings. Most likely this is technical area.
But for me this doesn't go together with the model pic by PrincessTower, linked here in posting #393:
the core top would already appear within the grid of the crown there, IMO.
Also compared with the other towers, Elite Residence could be around 350m now, only 30m to come - inlcuding the spire.
So either there's a total height increase, or the design of the hollow crown has been changed to a massiv one.
Or what's your opinion?

my guess: the space between the spire's 'podium' and the roof won't be empty

The block already looks so tall, I can't imagine with Pentominium

Yes, that could be a likely alternative. But what's the upper core for then? Just necessary to stabilize the whole crown? Or will there be some access to the very top for residents? Hard to believe... Or maybe the workers are so much in it, that they go for an encore just for fun (J/K)?

i guess it's easier (and cheaper) to support the crown by a core instead of these 4 steel arches. or they decided to overtake Marina 101

not only the tallest but also the densest

Here some close-ups of Elite Residence's top, taken through a gap between Emirates Crown and Marina Towers.
No core growth for the last 2 weeks, but slab floors have closed in by 1, I guess.

the slab is 17 floors above the last mech. level, the regular floors are almost done. only five floors to go for the scaffolding (according to the renders)

yeah, I was wondering about the sudden slowdown after the speed we've seen before - that might explain it. they've reached a level where the floor layouts and formworks change. the same happened at princess tower too, where it took quite a while to adjust once they've reached the penthouse section.

Here the setback can be seen clearer to the right, and the 2nd of the upper floors is already u/c!
In the middle this is mostly hidden by the formwork, that is up by one big level (equals one of the upper floors).

Another detail at the very top: one panel of the formwork has been removed - I guess that the core has topped out.
