I'd say because at no point in time was it the tallest residential building? Q1 was completed a year earlier, and is taller...

Yup, it will be barely smaller (10m) than the mumbai tower, with a similar facade too, only square.

If it is finished first it will be the tallest. (I do think the mumbai tower will finish first though)

Excellent picture of the tallest block from the Omega Dubai Desert Classic golf tournament today. The golf course in the foreground and the overcast sky make it look great.....

Guys, this thread is about World's tallest residential tower. The current one is 328 meters tall, so there's no point of talking about much shorter ones that wouldn't even have been a pretender a decade ago

Are Princess Tower and 23 Marina sold out? Or should we expect Vancouver-Syndrome where it's bought but no ones home?

Cul, the crane on Princess Tower is way lower then that, it should be close to the ground now, and you should also redesign the top feature of 23Marina, the proportions of the fins and spire are off

As for the Pentominium, a tight-lipped forumer involved with the project, is hinting that there would be news soon. Lets see how 'soon' soon is
