Cash-flow problems delay Dubai skyscraper

Quote:
By Elizabeth Broomhall | Tuesday, 20 December 2011 9:20 AM

Liquidity woes may push Dubai’s second tallest skyscraper, the Pentominium, past its completion date as developer Trident struggles with financing, the project manager said.

Kinda serves them right, as much as I like the design of this building, Dubai has waay too many skyscrapers for a city of only 1 million.

China at least has lots of people to make the buildings useful.

Dubai's hobby of making skyscrapers just outta fun without demand had to backfire on them sooner or later

Technically Dubai has over 2 million, give or take . And I imagine with such a cultural liberization due to the influx of foreign workers I'm willing to bet that the UAE is going to try and boost immigration numbers quite a bit for the future.

Tower developer in default on Dh75m loan

Quote:
Kevin Brass | Dec 30, 2011

The developer of the world's tallest residential building under construction in Dubai Marina is in default on a Dh75 million (US$20.4m) loan.

Trident International Holdings, which is building the Pentominium tower, is more than 200 days overdue on profit payments on the overdraft facility, according to Noor Islamic Bank.

and came to a dramatic end?

If the developer is in default, this could end up like the Waterview tower in Chicago.

IMO the problem with this one was the concept behind it. Every appartment was sold as a penthouse without being one. The first 70 floors would have more or less no special views. Just facing other buildings walls and a slight view towards the sea and palm, except the units windows facing towards Burj Al Arab.

Also, the design is a costly one, since it has many funky features. (imo the Pento was one of the best proposed buildings ever for Dubai).

Furthermore, Dubai has an immense oversupply in residential units, and i cant see Trident making enough money out of 128units (afaik) from this building to even cover construction costs let alone making money with it. (what was there goal)

I would glady hear news where the people behind trident are now, and whats happened with investor money. The last what i heard was that they are somwehere in NA.

Thanks for further info in advance.

my 2 cents

cheers Danny

I agree with everything you said GT, this could've been the best super tall in Dubai. What I don't understand is why the Marina buildings were packed so closely together, and why wouldn't they situate them parallel to the beach so every building had an unobstructed view of water? Whatever. Too bad though, this could've been a real beauty.

they were packed so closely together because the developers and rulers of dubai were trying to mimic real cities like new york or chicago.

Good try, but it's not anywhere near like chicago or new york...it looks just ugly now in my eyes.
