I highly doubt it. If it does happen, like LeMoN-SK mentioned, it will be a long time from now. And this will only happen if Dubai's growth is sustained, which might be very difficult.

Of course, Dubai is unpredictable.

I don't belive it will. One reason is that most "normal" people like to live in a house, not in a highrise. so they would have to demolish all those houses and "kick" out the residens. The highrises in Dubai are for now hotels, offices, and residencials ocupied by foreigners. I belive the large majority of emirati like to live in houses.

P.S.
Population (2008)
- Emirate 2,262,000
- Density 408.18/kmē (1,057.2/sq mi)
- Metro 2,262,000
- Nationality
42.3% Indian
17% Emirati
13.3% Pakistani
7.5% Bangladeshi
9.1% Arab
10.8% Others

an increase by 5.000.000 is very unlikely. Is one thing to have 1,400,000 constuction workers from south asia, another thing is to have another 5,000,000 highly educated carier peope, and an economy strong enough to provide for all work. You can't have 5,000,000 working in tourism.

Is not a gap, is filled with low rises and houses.

FIRST: Where in the hell came that 2.2M population figure from?

SECOND: Where in the hell came the 1.4M construction worker figure from?

THIRD: So highly educated carier people can be only "westerners"?

You mean something like the official 2007 cencus? Maybe you'll find that in the appropriate threads in the UAE forum.

... anyway what have all these to do with the Pentominium Tower?

we went off topic I guess. all started with my coment "of the view of Burj Dubai from Pentominium" and somme enthusiast stated that the 15 km gap will be filled with highrises (and demolish the old houses). than I say that another 5,000,000 people to fill the towers is not likely to happen. You need 5,000,000 carrier people, with big wages who can afford an apartment in a highrise building, and locals are just not enough.

Are you sure ? I heard today Dubai population is more around 1.5 millions people but growing fast, the emirati people are Arab in general I think the 9.1 % of Arab are come from others Arab countries I presume.
Wikipedia is not really a trust source.
Back to topic. I hope to see the Pentominium rising fast

Either way I'm pretty sure that stretch will densify, maybe not like SZR but enough to show some sense of continuity in the skyline,

As for the Pentominium one of my favorite developments, beautiful tower, sleek proportions, if i was millionaire I'd buy a suite there

For a minute I thought that was real! The rendered buildings really blend in wel with the picture. I wonder how many years we'll have to wait until the tallest block is done.

I do like like the redering. Thanks malec.

I disagree about the Pentominium. The spire looks disproportionately tall compared to the building. If I did not know the function of the spire was to make the building the world's tallest residential tower, I would wonder why it was there.
