Still seems fairly solidly anchored to the ground to me. Have you got a picture from a better angle to assert your claim?

Woah! It's taller than the pentominium now. Man I wish they would revive that thing.

Yesterday .. so let's count .. the black single floor is the 10th .. if we count from there we reach 30 revealed as I mentioned earlier (although it seems one floor is double the height of the regular ones, maybe its mechanical?)

Dang. It's getting really tall already. The construction speed is really really fast. Thank you for the update

It's figuratively flying up! And we're getting a really good idea of what Marina 101 will end up looking like too.

When do you think the façade will start being applied?

^ I am not exactly sure when the cladding will start to be applied but I do expect to see some cladding placed before fall if not before fall then before 2017. So definitely soon. The cladding will make or break this tower mush like the role it played with Marina 101.

The good thing about the Marina 101 cladding is that you just need to smoke a cigarette near your window and the whole cladding will have to be replaced.

Well thank god that developers in Dubai are forced to use fire proof cladding from now on. It will not only be more secure, but also look better due to the more expensive materials

Well since we know that the neighboring MAG 218 is 232m, we can calculate that 106 Marina current height is 125m

Sometimes you really have to visualise the height of this project.. Even in the tallest block, it will be about 20m taller than Marina 101 without any spire or roof feature adding some extra meters.
Now imagine 106 Tower in New York! It would stand out more than 432 PA does!

Would be somewhere between 432 PA and CPT.
