Isn't Eureka Tower still leader in the highest occupied floor category?

Btw. superb pic of Ocean Heights, Imre... from this viewpoint, the tower shows the biggest twist.

Dubai Steve should have posted this picture here as well.

Only 6 towers were standing 5 years ago.

Agree, Malec! Fabulous view from a different place. Arenco Tower (244m) to the right looks mighty here.
Indeed Torch seems taller here than Princess Tower, and Ocean Heights slightly taller than Marina 23 (the latter is a bit closer to the viewpoint). Torch appears smaller than 23 Marina and OH due to the bigger distance. But it's hard decide if Torch has the lead over OH...

I'd say that these four are all close to 300m now, although Altin could be right that none of 'em has made the supertall limit yet... Just compare with the 208/207m tall Marina Heights and Tamani Hotel on the very left and right edge of the tallest block. And Sulafa Tower in the middle of it isn't worlds apart, but must be under 270m as long as the entire top is missing.

Anyway the CTBUH only counts completed towers (and for the "occupied floor" category, this makes sense). The u/c buildings are just included in the list without ranking, no matter how far they're realized.

What a nite pic! And good to see all the active construction sites, while the tv-news in Germany tell overdone stories like "Dubai - city of halted ruins"
