As far as I can see, the Pentominium's podium seems to have risen a lot since the last update three weeks ago. I think it's the black wall just above the road sign with the arrow...

ANyway, welcome in the forum and thank you very much for the update

That's actually a billboard opposite the road from 23Marina

From the angle most photo's are made you won't see this tower anymore in 5 years. Pentominium will block the entire tower out of sight. Dubai is so mindblowing... This would be Europe's highest tower if it was in Europe but over in Dubai it's actually a dwarf... not even visible from most angles.

This is a corner tower so you would be able to see it from 270 degree, even if all the towers around will be taller, and since only The Pentominium is, the 23 Marina will still be clearly visible from almost everywhere

Definitelly. I remember the earlier times when we were amaized by those "very tall" 200 m towers there. Now they (Al Seef, Tamani Hotel, Marina Crown, Marina Height) are indeed dwarfed by the supertalls around and I keep wondering (I do drive by twice a day) how in the hell we used to consider those towers big

Acording to this http://www.mba-studios.net/wp-conten...rina-cam02.jpg render all floors should be topped out now, including the diagonal ones. So the freestanding roof structure can now start.

Additionally all of these distant triangular steel plates seem to be done, 12 on every side

The views will be unbeatable, towards JLT and the Media City.

But most of the pictures are taken from the Palm Island (from the north) or from the marina itself, which is south-west of it, and that are exactly the angles of which you won't see it anymore in 5/10 years.

Just look through all the pages and photo's I am sure that at least 80% of the photo's are taken from the angles which I just described.
