A very nice panorama from Desert Diver. You can see the progress of the various towers.

We can see that ocean heights has overtaken 23 marina will overtake the completed tower next to it as well. Amazing progress there.
Princess tower has risen over le reve tower now and the torch is at the same height.
Marina 101, Elite Residence and Infinity tower all have their cores about 10 floors above ground. Hopefully we will see progress on the structures soon.

I whipped this up real quick (so it's a bit crude), I'd say it's 99% accurate, but my info maybe out of date..

Just to get a gauge of what we're looking at from the above photo, is the building on the far right that's bold blue and pink Al Marsa Tower? Really liked the classiness of that one along with I think... Marina Crown (the tourquise glassed and sand colored tower third from the left in the above close-up)?

Thanks for helping all of us to understand which towers are which

You're spot on with locations.

I'm impressed with how tall Ocean Heights is already, but I'm having my doubts as to how well the curvature of the building is really going to look. Just doesn't seem like it will be as dramatic as the renders suggested. Maybe with another couple hundred feet or so...

It's quite subtle. You will only really notice up close.

Dubai_Steve's detail of the introduced fantastic Super-Panorama by Desert Diver proves some more winners:
- Mag 218 has just passed the 200-meter-limit
- Ocean Heights only needs about 10 meters to do so.
- Sulafa Tower in-between could have 140m meanwhile.

As a future supertall, Ocean Heights is more relevant here than the other two. And this tower deserves even more attention: it's so fast and seems to have overtaken 23 Marina now. In 2010, I guess, Ocean Heights might measure up to (or even beat) Eureka Tower in the category tallest occupied apartments (excluding mixed-use buildings).

well heres a quick drawup
i tried to move each tower slightly so you can see behind. gets confusing.
malec and others please pic it to bits and tell me of errors and amendments ect.
btw, emirates crown is definatley NOT 296m, ive scaled it at 284m.
also could someone tell me what buildings are either side of Tamani tower and infinity tower just so i can add towers either side of tallest block. just there name and height .thanks guys

Thanks a lot for this very helpful diagram, Culwulla!
This gives a good impression how much more there is yet to follow.

- I also think the height of Emirates Crown is overrated: 284m is a good estimation.
- The same for the "other crown": Marina Crown is clearly smaller than Tamani/Marina No. 1, this tower looks like only 200m, or even one or two meters below. The reason for the difference could be a change in the design: in renders like this one on Emporis, a greenish part of the roof was planned to stick out a bit like a pyramide. In fact, this element was cut, but Marina Crown's given height of 207m could still belong to the old design.
- And btw. you kill Sulafa Tower with kindness, 140m so far are more likely IMO.
