The view is just amazing
Yes, but in real life they are not going to look at Hong Kong.

You can really see how tall this tower is in this render.




I remember being in Chicago and was looking up at a tower, then behind that was another tower that was big enough to be seen over the tower in front despite being further away, then behind that was Sears Tower. That sort of tiered effect looked really impressive and make the Sears really look massive!

I really hate to say it but from the latest render the spire does look good, I called it a discarded syringe before but this one is good. I hope Chi Spire can go beyond610m, the FAA is not set in stone either there needs to be a real cause to go above 610m and the Chi Spire would not look that good with a spire either, perhaps add 7 spires on the perimeter to make a crown?

It would be bizarre to have the 3 tallest buildings all in Dubai with Al Burj, Burj Dubai and then Pentominium

thanks Malec Dubai Marina looks so small compared to the pentominum.

618 is way too tall for that area I know that nothing is tall enough for ZZ II But really I love the building and the design don't get me wrong but the location is definatly bad

i would rather see it on the waterfront of the Marina on the side ...

Not really. The render show only Pentominium. In the same area another very tall buildings will be constructed:

Marina 101 - 412m

Princess Tower - 414m

Damac Heights - 460m

+ numerous supertalls...

the pentominium official website is not updated. Why is this with many other official websites such as Burj dubai and updates every 2 months.

- Because the people that are responsible for updating those sites don't come to SSC and get the up to date info.

We get the best and quickest updates anywhere.

Hats off to the people in Dubai.

To bad something like that will not happen with the Burj Dubai. It stands just to isolated. You will have such effect only from the distance.

BTW nice render. I have a request could you take a pic from the same perspective but only from 250m above the ground? It must be great, looking down on 200m tall buildings and looking up to buildings with 400m and more.
