Nice to know the construction is in progress despite the world recession.

Is that space big enough for such building? As see on the rendering below.

Actually most of the photo's including this one is taken from an airplane, not from a satellite. But they don't update too frequently.

Actually, almost all of the aerial images we have of Dubai, especially the ones on Google Maps, are taken from a satellite owned by Digital Globe corporation. The sensor on that satellite has 1 meter per pixel resolution, and it actually usually takes usable images of Dubai once every month or two. But most of them are never bought by Google or by anyone else who releases the full resolution versions.

The Pentominium's size is grossly exaggerated in this picture. The Pentominium is about 50% taller than the Princess Tower to the far left. But, in this picture, the Pentonium looks 3 times taller than the Princes Tower. The Pentonium is exaggerated by a factor of 3 in this picture.

I think they made the mistake of the roof height VS architectural height, but according to this picture, (you can see The Harbour Hotel & Residence, which is 256m) its heigh is almost right, around 600-650m

That's not the Princess Tower.
