I don't think they will destroy it after reaching more than 25 stories >> So, the construction must continue in a time very soon ..

they may cut the height off after redesigning it to a smaller height. i remember there was a tower in new york city decades ago that shared a similar fate. i certainly hope they continue with the original plans though

i am pretty sure he confused the india tower with World One, because both are competing for the tallest residential building. or was india tower also pure residential? however world one is rising and already at like 18 floors, so even if pentominium starts again i am pretty sure mumbai will hold the title for at least a year.

SSP lists India Tower as mixed use. I too think he meant World 1

As to when this building will resume, I really dunno, but so far there are no news of resuming the construction so I expect World 1 to be the tallest residential tower for up to a few years at least

Wikipedia is often outdated and can be edited by anyone, not exactly the best source... Whilst CTBUH is essentially the Government of architecture. Plus Wikipedia lists it as Mixed Use as well, it just misses out the office component.

India Tower is clearly executed by the "Hospitality arm" of DB Group and not DB Realty directly. So India Tower's prominent function is to serve as a hotel, kinda like Burj Khalifa but I guess I hear more about BK's residential suites than Hotel suites.

But I have to say to you can't really compare Pentominium and World One because they both have different facades.

So sad to look at this building. It didn't deserve this cruel fate

I think it's safe to say that Dubai is no longer a good standard for 'fast construction' nowadays.

Re World One, wouldn't 432 Park finish before it since it's so much smaller? Oh, whoops, guess I'm a scant 15 meters or so off from 432 setting the record overall. So it'd be 432 (maybe) for ever brief of a time as WR holder, then World One, then Pento if it's finished; J220 notwithstanding trumping all of these at once potentially.

Hope Pentominium still gets back on track though!
