Great - another sea panorama of the whole tallest block!
A quick comparison with September, 21st (tallest resi candidates red):

Ocean Heights, Sulafa Tower, Marina 101... +4 floors
Elite Residences, Princess Tower, Infinity Tower... +3 floors
23 Marina... +2 floors
Maina Pinnacle, The Torch... +1 floor
(hope I got it right)

Ocean Heights and Torch could be level with Eureka (297m) now. But to top the overall height of Q1 (322,5m), the latter needs roof and spire, and meanwhile Princess Tower will take the lead, I bet. 23 Marina appears less tall IMO, and will hardly overtake Princess Tower. Marina 101 is even faster, but will have to grow to full height in 2011 to steal the title of the tallest residential from the Princess.

Oh! Indeed...
...so they'd have to add a 3-meter spire on top of Marina 101
Otherwise it's up to Pentominium - with or without spire.

Princess Tower taller than The Torch?
From the recent pics, the latter still appears ~10m taller.

- On your diagram from 16th Oct you have Princess at 283m and now it's +1 floor, so why not 287m (assuming that neighbour Emirates Crown is 284m)?

- You're right: nothing seems to happen at the top of The Torch (which at least burns on low flame, as new glass has been fixed on the facade). But the core is at lv80 or 81 (slab at lv78)... so 297m, like on your Marina diagram, are more suitable IMO.
