yeah it began too late. most of the other dubai marina towers are nearly finished, so they are being made till finish with the last money left, but the pentominium started when the financial crash hit dubai. so they work slowly on it like on dubai pearl and all we can hope is that they will not put it onhold.

Agree it does seem optimistic in the current climate, but maybe they have had off-plan sales.

yes indeed, it is very strange to me that there is any progress on a half kilometer tower in Dubai! i didn't think there would be progress on 200m towers
it really doesn't make sense, there must be some sort of reason for this in witch i don't understand but hopefully this will be completed without many delays

It was reported that the building had pre-sold somewhere in the 75%+ range. So unless a lot of buyers have backed out (which I read happened at Marina 101), this one should be okay.

Depends on the financial strength of the developer. Marina 101 owners said they're continuing construction despite their problems. So maybe the P.'s could continue as well. Only time will tell though.

I doubt any private developers would be able to fund a tower like this themselves, unless they have access to major bank finance. But the banks have just lost a shed load of money in Dubai and are probably very reticent to lend more at the moment. Whatever happens let's hope this one carries on though, it's the only one I personally like in Dubai.

Whoops, infinity tower is a cracker as well.

It's hard to know for sure about anything. Marina 101 looks like it has stopped. The cladding on that one hasn't progressed much in the last few months. Infinity Tower is reportedly slowed down while its developer focuses on another of its buildings thats closer to completion.

Pentominium is the best of the supertall block by far IMO. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
