but i think Torch will be next tallest as its the shortest out of the 3, thus will finish up first.
It has 5 less floors then 23 marina and a simple top structure compared to the others.
then i think 23 marina and then a few months later princess tower? thats 3 in 1 year.lol

As far as I see in the diagrams, the Princess Tower is slowing down as the others are continuing constantly. Actually it doesnt matter cuz its certain that it will be that tallest residential (not counting chicago spire yet).

i think Torch will hold title for a few months then 23marina and eventually princess tower. Then in 2011 the reigns will be given to mighty Spire in Chicago.
who knows how long spire will have title?
i can only see Al Burj beating it and thats ONLY if thats pure resi tower?

Hello, CULWULLA!
Your diagrams are fantastic! But why you won't register to skyscraperpage.com?

Same here, its amazing that a supertall of 610m/2000ft is entirely residential! Especially in the US. They are doing the right thing by marketing it worldwide, a lot of wealthy people are needed to fill those 150 floors!!! They shouldn't have much trouble doing so with it being such a prominent structure designed by Calatrava, tallest in North America, great location in a great city! However I have a feeling that by the time the Spire is completed, Dubai will have announced/started a new taller all-residential tower, probably in the marina area judging by how many they are building there already.

It doesn't matter. Chicago spire will have no chance of being the next tallest residential building ... I mean the next, after the C1.
