Remember, the podium will be surrounded by the podiums of other towers and the arcade on three sides. That's actually rather neat how they took a chunk out of the podium; with that you can stand at the base and look all the way up.

The Burj Dubai will be the second or maybe even the third tallest building in the city. There are plans for at least one building that I have heard of. And a proposed second 1200 plus meters. One is called just "The Tower" the other is "Nakeel Harbour Tower" I think that in the next 10 to 20 years, The Burj Dubai and the Pentominium wont even be in the top 20 tallest in the world.

Most of the 1000+ you heard of in USA or Japan and etc are visions which aren't designed to be neccessarily built. Only 1000+ so far that aren't visions are:

Mubarak al-Kabir Tower 1,001m
Murjan Tower 1,022m
Nakheel tower +1000m
Kingdom Tower +1000m

You can most certainly not rule out burj dubai out of top 20 tallest in next 10 to 20 years, and not even Pentominium. They'll be at least in top 20 until at least 2030 I think.

After looking at your architectural inspiration I can tell you have never worked in the field. A wind tunnel and 20 seconds with your design would help you gain a sense of inspiration to all the hard work that goes into a building like The Pentominium.

That may have held true back during the last boom, but you now have the world reaching for the sky. Not just 2 or 3 cities in the U.S. I'm willing to put up a crisp 10 dollar bill that in 15 years I'll be right.

Gorgeous, I got used to the antenna, it also looks like some of the building's lines have been changed a bit.

I know what a PentHouse is, but the article stated this, so...

According to this agreement the Italian luxury fashion house will design the interior of some exclusive Penthouses in the Pentominium building in Dubai. The Pentominium is the tallest residential building in the world, scheduled for completion in 2012. The over 500-meter and 120-story tower offers the ultimate in exclusive services to the future 120 Penthouse owners.

I don't belive the main reason for the spires was to beat the Chicago Spire for the record of tallest residential building.

A few better reasons would be:

- to stand-ut even more from the supertalls around.

- to be more balanced with NHT.

here is my very simplist skyline profile:

Anara is still a proposal. I suspect even a publicity stunt
