The Torch and 23 Marina getting roof feature/spire, structures of Infinity Tower and Marina 101 have topped out recently
and core of Princess Tower only needs 2-3 more levels.

The other two supertalls of this generation are (almost) not visible here:
Ocean Heights is almost completed, Elite Residences instead has about a dozen floors to go.

Florentyna Parker on 6th hole on the Dubai Ladies Masters at The Emirates Golf Club. What an inspiring panorama for sports, with six supertalls in a row! Looks if she might smash some windows over there by hitting a perfect drive... ;-)

@Imre: Is this just a short stop in Dubai or do you stay there for the next time?

The forum desperately needs your updates! (nevertheless thanks to all the others who live in Dubai and take pics)

I'm surprised at the lack of progress between the pics in August to late December. I assume lot's of interior work has been going on, but the Torch essentially has taken that long to almost complete it's spire! I guess even Dubai slows down

Reeeeeaaaaally?
In fact many slowdowns have happened, especially after the finance crises in autumn 2008, forcing developers to align construction speed to the current budget. So most of the Dubai supertalls have had phases of visible stagnation.

For example, Marina 101 and Infinity Tower were rising very fast in 2009 and early 2010, but not much has happened during the last 6 months. Now Elite Resindence and Pentominium are among the fastest around, but those had some slow times in earlier stages, too. You never know which towers will move forward fast and which not - but this is quite suspenseful to watch.

And as to [email protected]:

I didn't know that! Thanks a lot! Dubai forumers are a lot less cheeky and quicker to the responses than the Moscow crew haha
