Speaking of tall residential towers, how is Pentominium Dubai doing? Is there a thread for it, and are there any plans for it to go under construction again? I love the design!

Hi guys,

I guess you talk about this point but with a quick search I couldn't find something... anywhoozle:

How can this building even function with such a small footprint in terms of elevator capacities?
Do they have fixed times then like a shedule?
How many elevators are there anyway?

Or will this be one empty building most of the time since the people who can afford this will be around the word most of the time in the year and thus there is no real need for a fast transport in and out?

I'm not a big expert in skyscrapers as you can guess... but I'm a sexpert!!


Btw: CULWULLA, I love your charts!!! They were a reason why I spent more time on this forum in the beginning

@The man from k-town Those pictures almost look like the could be from a Chinese city, what with all the cranes dotting the skyline. Very impressive!

Also, Culwulla, you're missing We've the Zenith Tower A and Haeundae I'Park Tower 2from Busan in that diagram; the former is 301m and 80 stories, and the latter 292m and 72 stories, both purely residential. There are other towers in both of those developments that could go on that chart, but they'd end up filling the whole thing below 300m.

Oh, don't worry, there are enough elevators.

I didn't check the cam for a week or so. Did the cam move up? I'll make a new timelapse in a couple of weeks.

Look at at, breaking through the plateau. Now the real fun begins ... watching this behemoth eclipse every other building.

It will have four passenger elevators plus a freight one.

It may sound that is not so many, but the population of the building wont be so high either, even if all the apartments are occupied with permanent residents. There will be just one hundred and something units, that is much less than many other buildings in New York that can easily have 200 - 300 (or more) apartments

4 elevators is more than enough. They are probably high speed also. No long waiting times here.

It didn't pass any New York buildings with this latest jump, so no chart this time.
