It's risen above that massive transfer-type floor slab so things may speed up again.

Except Pentominium, wich is in a totaly different league, and Damac Heights, with poor chance of rising, all +400m are dull and cheap looking.

Here is a comparison with other 400-450m towers around the world:



Funny thing is that on Emporis ranking, they score more points...
Totally subjective, these are apartment buildings. And Marina 101 and Princess tower might turn out to be graceful in their own right.

So what that they are apartment buildings? The Pentominium, Damac Heights, even the smaller Infinity Tower or Ocean Heights are apartment buildings, but they have good design.

Anyway... it doesn't matter that much...

After all, even at +400m they are just fillers for the mighty Pentominium...

How come they always lie on these renders? One would think that you would have quite a view living in this building when in reality it will be surrounded by other skyscrapers on all of its sides.

I've seen this in almost ev'ry project in Dubai. The renders always show an "isolated" building.

They don't lie. When the towers were designed, there was nothing in the surrowinding areas so technically they are right.

However as in case of cars, they are presented in studio pictures and not in the middle of traffic amongs thousands of other cars.

As of today it has indeed risen one more level above the one shown on the May 15th pic above.

Those at a lower height are podium floors that will serve as parking space. The reason for that is that regular floors needs a higher ceilings to accomodate the Central A/C ducts.

This tower is skinnier then all its neighbors, while being taller then all of them (apart Princess and Pentominium)

well, the nice thing is that skinny tall towers might not look so bad among many other tall towers in the same block.

Now that the regular residential floors have started this might speed up a bit.
