Sounds good to me!

Just wondering, do you have a rough idea of how long it will take before Pentominium is above ground?

If it all goes to plan then it should be up to ground floor level in 12 months time. There are six basement levels above the raft apparently.

They aren't.

I know it's almost impossible to predict what can happen in the construction business, especially with the financial crisis right now, but do you see this topping out around 2013-2014?

We're not going through the spire ordeal again are we ?

The spire is part of the plans now - I think it looks good as does the entire design.

Hey Bramble. Are you involved in this project ? Can you get any plans and/or drawings or any other info ?

Sure hope not.

I agree, the spire is really cool, and the overall design is just awesome! It's a monster of a building! I must admit that at first I wasn't too sure about it [the spire], but it has grown on me.

This tower is going to totally dominate everything as far as Burj Dubai itself!

The building around it are and will be extremely tall. Even one of these buildings on this block and place it in another city and it would be the center piece and all its glory. That being said, just imagine this building topping all those buildings making them look small? It really is going to be an incredible site to see.

Great news!
So piling is finished? Does anyone know if piles are under the ramp? Will they do that in a later stadium or did we just missed that?

Yes, the ramp was only created once piling was finished and they needed to excavate deeper.

Around 2014? It is hard to tell but I would say maybe even closer to early 2015.If it takes a year from now to start rising above ground (which should be mid-2010) and it rises at the rate of 5 floors a month, it will only take 2 years to reach final floor count. So, if work goes well, it could concievibly be done as early as mid 2013. But, I don't see progress going that fast.
