It's a shopping center that occupies the site in the middle of the block of towerr.

I think he's talking about what's in line with al seef, sulafa tower, etc.
It's a district cooling station or something similar. The thread is here:

If I remember correctly, isn't there a cinema planned for this SC? I have a vague memory of this anyway..

Well, with tens of thousands of people occupying this block at any given time, I think a cinema would be an excellent idea.

Not a bad place to stick a hot dog stand (or 2) either. Just a little tip there for any budding entrepreneurs out there who want to earn some extra pocket money at the weekend. Please, don't thank me now. Just wait until you're taking delivery of that first Bentley.

Sorry to burst your bubble but I don't think it's a cinema... utilities for sure.

I know that. I wasn't referring to this particular plot (utilities/district cooling station), I'm talking about the possibility of a cinema at the SC.

Indeed it has. Yeah, I suppose with the MM being in such close proximity with this block it will be perfectly convenient. No great hardship to cross the road I suppose. The butler service sounds pretty cool. Why not eh!?

Of course, my thinking is along the lines of the inevitable volume of traffic that will enter and leave this one block 24/7 once occupancy levels really begin to soar. A lot of units here = a lot of people/car traffic.

The Marina Mall is certainly not in a walking distance. Is more then 1 km from there and I as a movie buff am totally against any form of distraction during the movie, and heaving a butler around certainly is ... but well, not everyone goes in the cinema because they loooove movies, otherwise DIVX format wouldn't have been successful.

Anyway ... the Pentominium is rising and that's what counts

Amazing how deceiving some photos can be huh!? In some, MM looks a stone's throw away. But actually being there in person is very different, I know.

You're certainly right about any distractions - especially during a movie. That's a no go!

Absolutely! It's fantastic to see this tower finally rising!

Anything from 1-2 km sounds like walking distance to me. Sigh, city people

Good thing to see one of few interesting projects in Dubai rising again. I have been waiting for this one .

Yes, but not when it's 45+ outside with 70+ % humidity level. I would say the walking distance is 2 km at least.

Don't be silly, no need. We all have the same objective here. Well, most of us skyscraper lovers anyway.

We all want to see Pentominium completed.

Great question. I'd probably go with BK, since its taller and has a higher profile. But the Pentominium has some sweet amenities for its residents. Still, gotta go with the world's tallest.

I agree. The BK is always going to have that very special aura surrounding it, simply because it is the tallest and the most illustrious skyscraper in the world. As long as it's the tallest, it will retain its edge over the rest imho.

If I could have get of the top floors of Pentominium, then I would choose it. I'd like to have a view of the sea from where I live. All the buildings are where they are because of their location to the water. To have access to the beach/marina when family and friends come over and what not. The BK has all the records and deservingly so, but, the residentual units are located in the middle and bottom part of the building. Im not certin on what kind of view one would have from there.
