Propably (but don't quote me on that) the name comes from Penthouses and Condominium.

That was my first impression of the name. Anyways, this will be a great tower, another masterpiece for Dubai.

Wikipedia

Just discovered that there was no article on Pentominium on Wikipedia!

I made a rushed attempt at putting one together, but I am sure I got a few things wrong, or could add some more. Feel free to go and edit it, or throw corrections and additions my way!

This is by far one of the best U/C buildings in Dubai. Actually it's the best after Burj Dubai IMO.

The skyline isn't only LA, in the right site of the picture you see a building from Tokyo too.

I actually like the design, not bad for a supertall.... and WOW is this building ever big.... Imagine having you're bed next to the window, and waking up, and groggily looking over and being 120 floors up! I'd have a heart attack!
