The Pentominium is really a great building, together with Burj Dubai my favorite in Dubai. I really like the design , probably even more than that of Burj Dubai and definetily more than that of other towers in Dubai , its very nice and sleek, and the overhanging balconies is a very cool idea indeed...btw are there any other supertalls around it...but since its Dubai probably they're some just next to it

ive been told pentiminium should be added to diagram because it will beat Spire to worlds tallest because it has 120 floors which will be quicker to construct then 150fl?

sorry to sound dumb but where is pentominiums plot?
is it just infront of 23marina?
if so what stage are they at?

Cul, it is on front of 23Marina on the boarded plot with 3 machineries and some site offices in them (center of the pic).

As for completition date compared to CS, I don't know considering the actual progress on both towers ... however for as far as I've seen, the North Americans aren't the fastest one when it comes to tower building, so who knows.

Hehe yeah.

Pentominium doesn't have even hole dug up, so I really doubt it will be completed before Chi Spire. Spire has the foundations almost done, at least that is what I think because they are working quite long on them already. Should start rising soon, but who knows when Pentominium will start growing up.

its hole will only 5 basements /17m deep. or 56m wide.
Chicagos Spires basements will consist of 7 levels or 24m deep. and a massive 122m/400ft long.

I'm sure that construction will progress fast after the pilling is completed.

Oh geez a worthless little spire is responsible for the height increase? Hah. They can call it whatever they want I guess. I hope I'm here for the day when all buildings look like One Prudential Plaza in Chicago.

Oh yeah, the Chicago Spire will definitely still have the moral victory for WTR. On the other hand, I doubt either of them will maintain the title for very long.

But talk of "cheating" aside, I think the spire aesthetically adds a lot to the building. And for that reason I like it, not because of the record in an increasingly unimportant category.

this is only 200m lower then mightyBurjD
Does everyone think the developer realised it wasnt much lower then SPIRE, so what the hell.?
i think pentomiuim looks better with the spire.
Chicagos SPIRE people will be pissed. they cant even add a 9m spire to beat pentomium?
atleast SPIRe will be tallest building in America and tallest units outside of Dubai.
