That sounds about right! If you consider how long Burj Dubai took to go 800 meters (6 years?) then 4 to 5 years would seem normal process for a 500 meter building.

The whole 830 - 840 meters of structure of Burj Dubai took exactly 4 years to be completed.

They started work above the raft on early 2005.

I guess its true, this tower seem will not start rising any time before next year!
Its a very big project, bigger than anything around probably worldwide!(after BD and the Guanghzou tower). So its just normal to take alot more preparation time.

Guangzhou Tower is nearly complete, I'd put Tokyo Sky Tower in that list. And don't forget Shanghai Tower.

It's nice to see that construction has already begun, I can't await to see this building when it's complete, it is a real beauty.
Btw, with Chicago Spire now on-hold, is Pentominium more likely to be topped out earlier?

Definately. Also if CS wasn't on hold at this stage Pentominium would top out earlier. Construction speed in Dubai is quicker than in US, for sure.
