Site visit: Pentominium Tower

Home to the world’s tallest tower, the world’s highest restaurant and the world’s largest shopping mall, it comes as no shock that the record-breaking city of Dubai is now on track with the world’s tallest residential building.

The real surprise is that we are not talking about the Princess Tower. At a height of 414m on completion, Princess, which made waves thanks to its tall order, will be no match for the soaring penthouse skyscraper of the Pentominium.

I am confused... All the promotion material I read about this tower said there was to be one unit per floor, hence the "Pentominium" portmanteau of penthouse and condominium. However, looking at all the construction images, it looks as if there is a unit on either side of the core for each floor.

I don't think they're at that section of the tower yet.

"While in construction terms the building has just 122 levels, technically it could be described as having 172 floors because it has apartments on each side of the building offset or separated by a flight of stairs, with lifts stopping at individual apartments."

"Only" 71? That's way too short

(Personally I didn't believe see it built in my life ..... seriously so long time I was looking foward to see its grow up .. so now for everything concerning it I'm so glad (: so keep smile )

Ahhhhhhhh! No I get it. Thank you!

On the lower floors there ARE units on either side of the core but they are staggered in height so that they are a half floor apart from each other... And then later as we get higher, there will only be one unit on one side of the core.

Strange, but makes sense now.
