Yes, it is good to see that some work is going on, but I definitly don't think they are going to make their current due date for completion. I'm just hoping that once construction starts, this doesn't become the next al attar for speed of completion!

Thx, I'm just delighted that things are starting to move here now finally. I'm sure it's going to be a great experience and a lot of fun watching this amazing tower rise over the next few years.

Really appreciate all the info

I've always been amazed at how small this site is, I mean this is one seriously tall building and when you look at the size of that hole it's really hard to believe they can place a 600m+ tower in there. Fantastic what can be achieved with such dedication and tenacity huh.

One thing's for sure, there's gonna be so many awesome photo shoots on this build!

Maybe it's like Chicago Spire, only the core is deep underground and the rest is build around it. But I don't think so, and actually it isn't that small. If you look at the digging machine in the last photo update by Imre, it really seems quite big.

Hi PG.

And I for one will be saving every shot...

The site is fair size but not large. I think what makes it look smaller is how tight it is to the surrounding buildings.

Does that make this a tight hole ? ..... - -

Hi Fury,

Well, if you put it like that then I guess it does. Had a gut feeling that was coming.

@Topic: Whoa, can you even imagine Pentominium/Infinity/tallest block, BAA all completed...?! What a skyline that will be!

Now if only Nakheel could resurrect NHT... well, I guess they'd need to resurrect themselves first huh!?

Actually, I'm glad to see a megaproject start from the beginning... Tokyo Sky Tree-style progress would be good though, no doubt

We can only hope that progress on the Pentominium will speed up soon. I also heard that the tallest block has 3 unoccupied lots. Does anybody know what's going in those spots?

There is definitely one plot between the pentominium and marina 106 which we know nothing about.

There is the massive plot in front of the torch and marina heights. That's where marina sky towers was proposed and hopefully, nothing like that will get built and there will be something like 2 small towers and some public space.

There's a plot behind al seef, so between sulafa tower, al seef and the pentominium really, but that is not for a tower. There's supposed to be a dewa power station or something there.

Also a new plot has been created in front of infinity tower since the construction of a new bridge and demolition of the old one has made some space. Nothing is known about that plot though.

A park would be a fantastic idea! Once the tallest block is completed this whole area will be so crowed 24/7. With that kind of density and population it will be very important that people who live in these towers have someplace to go...to chill out even for a couple of hours every day in the open air. Especially if you are a family/couple who have kids. A mini mall would be a good idea also. That would save having to take the car out.

That's what the marina arcade is isn't it? (well if it ever gets built that is).

Hi BRAMBLE,

Really hope so, as this would be very convenient for the residents living here.

Works will slow down for a few days, apparently awaiting Permits from Dubai Municipality, but will start up again next week.

But isn't there also a spot between Marina heights and The Torch. I heard that the marina sky towers were next to them, but what goes between them?Any ideas?
