Can you also update the supertall diagram for January if you have free time? It's been a long time since we last got the update.

how close together are the torch and princess, it looks like you could jump from one tower to the other
I think not... the distance between those 2 towers in not too small for a jump...

I have to admit that Eureka Tower is my favorite residencial tower, even from the latest in Dubai. Still 23 Marina is architectually different than the classical box-pencil tower, and has a better cladding

my guess is that Princess wins, just because its facade is progressing so well and the top of the torch looks like it needs ages to construct

Indeed, Princess Tower is a hot competitor, moving upwards quickly. On the other hand: this tower has +17 floors and +76 meters more to go than The Torch... and the core is always about 10 floors ahead of the rest.

Anyway, this race will get more thrilling in 2009, when these towers will begin to dominate the Marina skyline. I'm looking forward to it!
