No, not yet.

The opening was expected to be in April. I do not know if this has changed.

Indeed the progress has slowed down on Princess Tower in 2009.

The Torch and 23 Marina keep growing steadily now, although the latter somehow always looks less tall to me than stated. Compared to Al Seef (215m with spire) and Tamani Hotel (207m) on the March 12th panoramas in post #335 and #336, I'd give 23 Marina only about 170m.

Thanks cul, for your diagram. When this progress of the towers goes on each tower can become the tallest apartment tower. First: The Torch, Second: 23 Marina, Third: Princess Tower and Finally: Pentominium

Depends on which building and floor. About AED 1.5m (USD $400,000) for a 2 bed / 2 bath apartment with marina view on average at the moment.

princess and torch are neck and neck. 23 marina slowly but surely
pentominum is on hold indefinately ;-(
The torch has reached 3rd section of 25 floors, so they should take off soon and should reach 300m in 5 months.

Thanks for the update!
The only ugly thing now are the six red letters at 260m of Pentominium ("COME ON" would sound more optimistic ). So you go with the rumours that the tower is on hold, not just at the end of the piling phase, with underground floors to commence soon. And this wouldn't be funny and weird enough to make an April Fool's joke.

I hope you can remove these words soon. In the meantime we can focus on the close race of the three others. Actually, The Torch is shining the brightest...

Nobody said it's on hold. I just said I predict it will go on hold, not it will. Anyway even if I said that how would I be sure. Whatever is happening all those piling rigs have left, maybe they have finished piling and within a few days the main contractor will be on site.

Don't think Pentominium is on hold just waiting for next contractor.
