This is the progress the tower made in 15 months.

Lol forget about what I said there, it is clearly taller then Emirates Crown already. Also it's 296m, not 294m.

There is one thing that's bugging me though. The height gap between Infinity Tower and Emirates Crown should be just 10 meters according to the official records, while the gap between Emirates Crown and Marina SPA/Mariott Hotel (254m) should be 42 meters. However, this does not match the photos. Either Emirates Crown is 10 - 15 meters smaller than the official record or Infinity is taller

The 294 meters for the Emirates Crown was for the original design, but at the last minute (as to speak) they built a shorter spire, hence the difference.

So yeah, your observation is correct (I think 276 or something is the correct EC height)

Also, look what I found on DAMAC's website:

http://www.damacproperties.com/en/pr...mac-residenze/
Quote:
Rising through the last area of platinum real estate in Dubai Marina, one of the most desirable locations in the city, DAMAC Residenze offers stunning views of the Palm Jumeirah and the surrounding neighbourhood.
Occupying levels 43 to 84 of the award-winning 86-storey DAMAC Heights tower, [...]
So the entire tower was, and is still, called DAMAC Heights. "DAMAC Residenze" is only a part of it. Time to change the title

This might've been posted but they have a photos / media section on their new site. Has a video for the tower as well.

Damac Residences is far taller than the Marriott I remember only a few months ago when the marriott soared above Damac Residenzes.
