thanks!
Dubai stances are all fine and the completion of this tower could very well be to its full height, but I can't say the same for you choice of president for 2020

Don't keep any high hopes but a few days back I saw the lights on top of the central core formwork were on. Then today I saw that the remains of the original tower crane hoisted on the right outter side of the core were removed ..... and now you can see a tower (of a crane without a boom) rising hoisted from the inner part of the core.

I know it's usually dumb to keep one's hopes up, but in the case of Pentominium I'm cautiously optimistic. It's in a prime location, the groundwork is already done, the detail planning is probably done too, and it'd cost a fortune to repurpose the lot. Unless there are significant changes to the building codes in the mean time, it's a pretty big chance it'll get finished as planned one day.

and a tower not much smaller is rising just next to it, so the will to build tall is still strong. It's just that the developer or the pentominium is difficult to judge.

Prime location? Since the time it was planned, the 'views' have been mostly blocked. Unless you want to spend millions looking at other apartments instead of sea views. Even the top floors won't be as good as a sea front location.

No one promised a sea-front location

There is a promise if a building location is on the sea front that your view will never be blocked. Otherwise you are correct, no promises. This building is fantastic, but I cannot see wealthy people paying top prices if the view isn't what they want. I wish I could see the early renders again.

So they have to build a 800 m + mixed-use tower with the flats at the top

Please, tell me Pentominium is back on track. Pentominium is one of the world's most amazing residential projects.

That's too bad. I was willing to sell some Lehman Brothers stocks to buy a penthouse in Pentominium.

It is NOT on the sea front

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I simply meant that the prime views are protected only if the Pentomonium was sea front.

The back row center location in the world's tallest apartment block is not prime. In my opinion.

Would you pay top dollar now, considering the placement and growth that has changed the view since inception?

Well it seems people would bcz towers were already topped out around it when they started building it! It wasn't any less dense back then

I just wonder who will pay high money for like a 6th floor place. I mean...why?
I would not buy unless I was in the top 20% of floors.

That's why a 6th floor unit will be significantly cheaper than a top floor unit - like everywhere in the world
