DUBAI | Marina Pinnacle | 280m | 73 fl | Com

The Marina Pinnacle, a 66-storey is under construction in Dubai. It will be 260M in height and will be one of the taller towers around.
It will cost approximately USD 218 million to build and will be primarily residential



For all you naysayers, here is a picture of the construction board


And a photo of the construction site, as of Dec 29 2004

Count me impressed but where are all those buildings that are being built. I took a close look at those photos but there doesn't seem to be much construction activity aside from those amazing islands....

the area of dubai city is big mate!

the old center of dubai at the creek is up to 35km away from the new heart of dubai, the jumeirah/dubai marina area.

towers are built everywhere, most of them presently in the new heart of dubai. about 300 towers and luxury mid-rise residential buildings here

it's hard to see it in the pics, but if it was possible to get an aerial shot you would be impressed by the huge size of the construction sites of all these projects located next to each other.
