I mean its only 5 floor reduction!!
5x 3.65 = 18.25 meter
420 (if not 460 meter anymore) - 18.25 = 402 meter

The tower's top looks much shorter in the new render, compared to the rest of the tower. I guess that the height reduction comes from there.

well i counted about 83 floors and top fin is equal to about 13, thus 96floors @ 3.65m=350m? max.
somewhere 330-350m i reckon ;-)

Disappointingly, that's is a more like it height!
But I really hope that the new render is just a skirmish of some marketing campaign for the project. They always draw new and nicer drawings that lack a lot of time accuracy!
After all, we and the main contractor who cares about those details at this stage!

Yeah, but I was thinking more like Princess Tower or Elite Residence. Infinity is a class of its own.

Great news, yes, but that's quite strange: on the information panels which are in front of the work site, it's still the initial design which is showed.

Finally, which version of the tower is going to be built? The initial one or the new one which wad released a few weeks ago?
