DUBAI | The Pentominium | 1,693 FT / 516 M | 120 FLOORS | ON HOLD
 
World's largest residential tower will provide 'height of luxury'

The Pentonium in Dubai will become the world's tallest residential tower
Plans for the world’s tallest residential tower - the Pentonium in Dubai - have been unveiled today.

Trident International Holdings has partnered to create unique alliances with premium brands from across the world for its new 516 metre-tall tower, a development they describe as the 'defined height of luxury'.

The top floors of this world’s only Pentominium will contain a Sky Lounge, Sky Pool, Business Centre and a private observation deck along with ladies & gentleman’s health clubs and a cigar lounge, squash courts, a banqueting hall and private theatre.

Each individual residential unit will take up a complete floor of the tower providing over 6500 sq.ft. of living space.

Each floor will have a private foyer of its own and smart biometric access control.

Taking the element of luxury living spaces to another level are entire floors which are uniquely suspended in mid air, giving the impression of floating penthouses in the sky.

“Our aim is to create the new benchmark in luxury living,” said Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Wazir Ali Daredia.

“This aim is reflected in all our projects and is what differentiates Trident and its projects. Through the alliances we have partnered with for Pentominium, along with the uniqueness of this proposition, we will achieve this.

“The building will be iconic, and its residents exclusive. They will be living in a piece of history.

“Trident’s strategy has always been to offer innovative luxury features combined with premium waterfront location, and the Pentominium development is the very expression of this.”

Trident is positioned and acknowledged internationally as a boutique developer of successful and highly visible residential towers in Dubai, including Marinascape, Bayside Residence and the Trident Grand Residence.
Like Trident’s other projects, Pentominium will be no more than 500 metres from the waterfront at Dubai marina; the centrepiece of new Dubai.

Daredia added: “Our background in luxury goods demonstrates our precision and finesse, our understanding of true opulence. We do not sell towers, we provide a lifestyle.”

Pentominium is being designed by award winning and world renowned architects and designers Aedas. Based in Britain, with offices around the world Aedas is responsible for a number of striking buildings and developments in Dubai and across the Gulf already.

Interior design of Pentominium will be undertaken by Hirsch Bedner & Associates, exclusive designers of Ritz Carltons, Grand Hyatts & Four Seasons worldwide.

There will be a dedicated Concierge Service by Quintessentially, the international private members club, which will be available 24 hours a day to meet residents’ needs whether locally or across the world.

Through a series of unique alliances Pentominium owners will have the rights to use a fleet of premium automobiles including a Rolls-Royce Phantom that comes as part of the Pentominium experience along with world renowned Azimut yachts for leisurely trips across the Arabian Gulf.

The tower’s spa will be run by Six Senses Spas, the operators of a number of premium world class health resorts around the world including the multi-award winning Soneva Fushi in the Maldives, itself one of the top 10 spas in the world according to Forbes.

All public areas will be crystallized by Swarovski and each Pentominium unit will be fitted with state of the art sound equipment Bang & Olufsen can provide.

Pentominium’s business lounge (overlooking The Palm) will be accessorized by exclusive Tiffany accessories.

This one's actually likely to be built too since the company have a good reputation, unlike ocean heights 2 which is being built by damac

Why am I not surprised?

However, I am still amazed and baffled, in a good way.

Where is the demand for such megatowers coming from? Dubai is building like half a dozen buildings the size of the Freedom Tower as if it was a joke. What people need this, Dubai only has a million plus population! :uhh: :???: :dissy: :no: :eeekk:

Slick building, stupid name, dunno what the hell LA is doing in there...

?

Chicago Spire is just as proposed as Pentonium.

malec Mar 16, 2007 2:20 AM

Just to tell you this thing isn't being proposed by emaar or someone else with bottomless pockets. They'll have to sell this if they want to get it built, same as any other tower in the marina.

Massive render:

That is not a bad looking tower. Plus the views would be incredible at night.

malec Mar 16, 2007 10:28 AM

^^ Only if you're above the 80th floor since it's crammed in there with another 10 massive towers:

BTW, the name is PENTOMINIUM, so please change the title.

M II A II R II K Mar 16, 2007 1:31 PM

Why would they make a rendering with L.A. in the background, especially since Dubai has enough of it's own towers to appear in the background.

Plus I imagine it would be a pain every time the fire bell rings and everyone has to stand outside!

DUBAI2015 Mar 16, 2007 11:10 PM

I like the way it has 7 setbacks on the side of it
And which plot is the Pentonium in the big marina picture?

MGW Mar 17, 2007 3:49 AM

This is one of the better buildings all-around that Ive seen in Dubai, not to mention the new level of luxury is ridiculous. My only problem is that the building will not stand out as much as it would in any other city, or in some other part of the Dubai Marina, or something. It will be surrounded by towers, and about 8 of them are supertalls, and of those, I think there are 4 that are only 300 or less feet shorter. So not only will it not stand out as much, but I'd assume views of the water would be somewhat inhibited.
