No need to move it, but I would rotate it by 90°. Now, the side is faciung the open space rather than the curved front, which does not make sense to me.

I guess such a thin and tall building would avoid the sea wind force better from the side than fully colliding it towards the wider face.

No, the area was planned for towers of unlimited heights. All the plots and road infrastructure layout were very clearly defined on the masterplan of Dubai Marina. The Pentominium is the last tower that was announced for the area (from the ones already build or under construction)

If Marina 106 will hopefully get built this could also help to integrate the Pentominium a bit more to the whole block. But I agree too, the position is not the best as is the orientation (rotation).

Location might not be the best overall, but it was the best they could find. The other good plots were already grabbed, including those empty ones mentioned here (seaside in front of Infinity and Marina-side in front of The Torch).

The orientation, or better say shape .... the terraces on the 23 Marina side, are indeed incorporated to reduce the wind pressure in the structure, they're not just by chance there. The winds are very strong in between very tall towers.

The winds are very strong in between very tall towers.

This is very true. I've experienced almost being blown off my feet when walking past some towers which were only about 22 stories. God only knows what the wind can do to pedestrians at the bottom of these giants.

Some from above by 234sale from skyscraperlist.com. Pentominium made almost two levels in a week. And the men in blue, green and yellow are standing crowded... so this keeps going now.

On the opposite side (facing 23 Marina), they have assembled formwork for the floorplate, which is strange since the terraces are on that side.

Man, the Pentominium will become one narrow supertall...

And are the units for one large family or for two small families?
