I'd have loved the top of the spire a bit bigger... more accentuated in relation to the crown.

Nethertheless - Elite Residence is the 3rd tallest topped out building in Dubai at the moment behind Burj Khalifa and 23 Marina (and fifth, including non-topped out Marina 101 and Princess Tower).

not sure if everybody noticed, but there is this bellied, round bodied part on the lower section of the pole. you can see the frame of it behind the scaffolding. In addition there is going to be two spheres on the base of the spire. one of which had small light dots in the latest mini model. the framework is already visible - see if you can find it.

and by the way, I know it doesn't look like that from a distance, but this red light on the tip of the spire is so huge and heavy - you wouldn't be able to carry it for long.

Yup, the lower spire part will be way different from the upper... unfortunatelly this will be mostly hidden when seen from closer street levels. The four crown edges will look bigger, and the spire's top will be difficult to recognize from greater distance during daytime, I suppose.

That's for sure... the light must have a diameter of 0.5 m at least. But imagine carrying a crown steel segment instead!

IMO It would look a lot better if the cladding was white instead of yellow, but damn the crown is coming along nicely, I love it.

Thanks for the update.
