I hope there are no similarities to Pearl Dubai, that might soon get shelved . The infos about Pentominium here sound much better.

Huh? What thread are you looking at? Every time there's new info about this tower's construction it is stressed how crawling with workers the site is and how huge the amounts of concrete regularly pumped into it are. Not making any progress? What do you base that comment on? That it hasn't increased in height significantly? Look at any other thread in this forum and you'll see that after the foundations, the base always takes the longest to construct. From all info that we are given in this thread by locals who observe construction (such as 234sale, PrincessTower, BRAMBLE) you can easily gather that there's a ton of work done on this tower every day (except fridays, of course...)

Absolutely. The Pento site is one of the most busy in the marina. Day and all night. I've observed it from the Tamani hotel with perfect view from above for over a week - there is so much stuff to be done in preparation for the next floor. It can't go much faster. The podium floor work is so complex in both layout and structure. Also, unlike residential floors, the podium levels change shape and are interconnected (e.g. with car ramps etc).

So we shoudn't compare it to conrete-thursty beast Elite Residence where they repeat one floor dupllicate after the other so easily at the moment.

I live in the tallest block now and will let you know when things get stuck. For the moment no worries.

Progress this week:

- Core jumped.
- multiple heavy steel i-sections placed within columns next to core.
- a massive concrete diagonal strut reinforced - wish Imre was here to photo!
- next (not sure of level??) north east floor segment, tables up and reinforcing.
- lots of pouring in areas out of sight over the course of the week.

Looks like some complicated stuff going on, progressing well.

I envy you. Whenever possible may you share some street-level pictures of the tallest block? I'm curios if there´s any street activity, shops, cafes, etc.

Great progress with the Pentominium.

The block is a construction zone, not much street activities there, plus the Marina Promenade is just next to it.

now i'm just assuming here, but with dubai's horrible urban planning i'm guessing that even after all the construction is completed, there won't be much street activity at all.

Well, there are few venues around in the already lived in builldings. Cafes and restaurants thats for sure. But the block didnt escape its construction site image yet, even the streets in between. Beside, these are literaly mega buildings, and usually in other parts of the world or even the city, such building should have more space around them to include landscape and shopping sites. Here am not sure if these are feasible, maybe will be comprimised to an unusual level

the pentominium is very close to the marina walk. don't know if you can get much more street activity than that. it's also close to the beach. what more can you ask for?! I'd say you'll have literally hundreds of shops and restaurants in walking distance.

You guys forget that in between the towers on the block, would be a shopping and entertainement complex with a park on the roof. Then of course Marina Promenade is just next to the block.
