if one building cast a shadow over another one, it will be less hot

OK I'll move it, however hopefully we will see a close up picture soon enough so we can see what's actually happening.

The Supertall Block

Just think how small the Pentominium will be when the Anara and Nakheel Tower are in the skyline.

Not only there are three piling rigs on site but you can also see that piling is an ongoing process (the crane holding the steel caisson) and the machineries are not just parked there.

In fact pentominium will be quite short looking in dubai skyline compared to many other skyscrapers. We wont see the spire of pentominium from far away and therefore all the 550m+ towers will dwarf this one in dubai.

I'd love to see a picture of the site. The only pictures we've seen posted have been far away shots, and it looks like they've only been doing minor prep work so far. Is it really u/c?

They still have that old pentominium design on the board, without the spire.

That cube being excavated is all core right?

Aww. I was hoping they'd decided to ditch the stupid spire.

It's totally blatant what they're trying to do, be taller than the Chicago Spire. But they've ruined what was a fantastic building. If they'd increased the actual height of the building, I'd have been fine with it, but they've added a total abortion of a spire instead.

On the board, the white skyscraper which is just left to the pentominium is in Los Angeles, right ?

Eh...I don't think the spire looks bad. Anyway the CS isn't going to be built so it doesn't matter.
