To see Pentominium on hold would be one bad news, and a redesign another. But as long as the piling machines are on the site, I keep hoping that there's only a short delay and my fingers crossed that it will be built as planned.

CMack,

before I post in a Thread, the first I do is to read the first 2 or 3 Pages of a Project maybe more to get an overwiew. Afterwards I gonna decide to post there or not.

Who said this building is on hold?

From a distance I saw today a machinery working on the slurry wall of the site.

that part 1 is FANTASTIC. it will show all the americans "oh i cant come to dubai cus im not allowed, or is dubai in iraq? im scared ill get bombed". Shows the true Face!

I am loving the top of this tower, the way it moves out, so sleek, so graceful!

edit: not ALL americans, just the ones that are stubborn in views.

Stuff like that

Anyway, did you notice that in the video they have an observation deck at the very top level. Would this be public or just for the residents, because if it was public it would be the tallest in the world I think, but no one mentions it when they are talking about the highest public ob decks.

The observation deck in the video did not look like a public space. It appears as thought the observation deck is just for the use of the residents of the Pentominium as a communal space.

Yes Vanhenrik, I agree. Dubai has a lot to do before it can be a true city. Any city that does not have an abundance public spaces or parks (that are free) is a city that is not doing enough for its residents or visitors.

Worldwide parks are maintained by Municipalities and in fact financed by Municipality Taxes that are paid by the city's residents. In Dubai residents do not pay direct taxes, therefore the Municipality is forced to charge a small fee to people wanting to visit.

When I say "small" I mean from $1.4 - $2.8

BTW, the observatory on top of the tower is for tower's residents ONLY, it is mentioned on press releases.
