Below Pentominium is a power transformer station. I've seen some workers (small red dots).

I've counted over 100 workers onsite when I took this picture:

Work activity on the main slab still going on - it's midnight now...

Hi BRAMBLE,

Wow, incredible! Just about everything connected with Pentominium is on a massive scale. Except the plot itself of course.

Right this minute I can see from my window a convoy of concrete trucks lining up offloading their freight one after the other.

Looks like it's being poured inside somwhere. Preparations for the next floor casting are half way done I would say. So much rebars everywhere!!

So Princess Tower, you live in Dubai Marina I suppose. But not in the Princess Tower right? Seeing that it's not finished yet, or are the lower floors already opened?

Just got here a few days ago and am staying in a hotel for the moment. Don't have any news on the Princess yet. What you can see easily walking through the tallest block is that the two Tameer projects together with Pentominium stick out because they are very busy all around the clock.

Thank you for your update. I went to UAE two times and like to see supertall buildings in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I hope to go there again and see that supertall buildings are complete.

Dubai's tower set to be world's second tallest

Bradley Hope | Last Updated: Oct 24, 2010

It already has the world's tallest tower and now a second building rising out of the dust could allow Dubai to displace Taipei in Taiwan as the home of the world's second-tallest.

The Pentominium building is one of several super-tall structures emerging from a corner of Dubai Marina known to planners and architects as the "tallest block".

The new tower will rise 516 metres and become the second-highest in the world after the Burj Khalifa if it is completed to its design height.

Three others under construction - Princess Tower, 23 Marina and Elite Residence - would also be in the top 20 tallest if they are completed to their original designs.

The "tallest block" towers together will add some 4,000 units to the market in the next two years, including 1,560 in the next six months alone.

"Despite the consequences, developers have no choice but to finish," said Billy Rautenbach, the managing director of the estate agency The Property Store. "They took the investors' money and they can't pay them back."

Sheikh Maktoum Al Maktoum, the chief executive of Al Fajer Properties, this month called the situation between investors and developers a "zero sum game".

"It was a game of chicken between the developer and the investor," he said. "If the developer can't deliver then the investor gets his money back. If the developer delivers, the investor loses his money."

The Pentominium is rapidly taking shape with dozens of workers from the Arabian Construction Company on site. The building comprises 120 one-floor apartments, each marketed as a "penthouse". The developer is Trident International Holding.

Brokers said all the construction of these buildings was financed with investor payments that were required to be made over a period of time, although the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA) mandated last year that payment plans adhere to construction milestones.

Still, to prevent the projects from being cancelled, developers must keep hitting the milestones, while investors must keep paying for construction or risk losing some or all of their investment.

They have to build at top Dubai speed if they want to catch up to 1WTC.

WTC1? By the time that particular tower would be completed, who knows if it will even be on top fives, so how about the Shanghai Tower.

1WTC grows at a steady pace of two floors every two weeks, as I said, it is unrealistic to think the Pentominium is going to overtake it, and it's not very likely that the Shanghai Tower will do so, either.
