Today all the newspapers talked about this company swissborin or something winning the contract of the Pentominium tower to start excavation process very soon. They confirmed again the hieght of 516 m and 120 floors. Starting should be very soon digging 65 m underground with ground and water testing. No body mentioned any commencing date or finishing date.

This tower officially on the GO

CORRECTION: There will be around 250 piles, driven to a depth of as much as 65 meters.

I ONLY corrected your wrong assumption that the hole will be dug 65 meters deep.

I mean come on, 500+ meter and not yet started! well, BD is the nearst hieght right now to that and until now since 4 years its less 75% done. This still counts in the taking for ever zone, don't you think!!
But you are right, it takes alot of time anyway. I think I shouldnt get that fast forward Satellite receiver service, it start make me lose my time patience

Not that great of a design.
seems a bit boring and no originality, doesn't fit Dubai.

It only looks nice from certain angles.
