Now that the excitement with the 400m towers is nearly over, I'm glad that this one enters the scene. Almost perfect timing.
Agreed. I'm hoping Dubai goes on a 200m towern craze. It doesn't need anymore supertalls.

Yes it's going slow at the moment and has not been on hold recently. A person on SSC who is maybe a site manager here or something (he certainly knows a lot about this particular construction site) says it's because of the huge amount of stuff that has to be done at ground level to hold up such a tall and skinny tower (and also that there's very little space to store materials in adjacant sites. Who knows, I wouldn't be surprised if there are financial problems.

lets hope the pentominium dont run into financial troubles and get halted that would be a huge loss for Dubai and the Dubai marina especially.

i kinda miss the time when there where no limit in Dubai . like when infinity tower continued even after the whole building site was turned into a pond.

i Guess it couldn't last anyway, the speed earlier was insane.

and it actually turned Dubai into the world famous city it is today with some of the boldest skyscrapers Projects in the world in only about 15 years

I think the worst that could happen now at this point is it being cut short like Waterview in Chicago. But he good thing about this is that even if it doesn't get built to its full height, it helps make the marina a denser (buildings right next to each other) area.

It is still U/C yet, although I'm surprised about that.
