It is amazing for sure. But just for curiosity, how tall would it be without the spire? Would it still be the second tallest building in the city, or would Burj Al Alam take that placement. I heard that without the spire, it would be somewhere in the 1600ft. range. None the less, I hope the spire is built. It fits in well with the building.

Don't worry, you will! Time is on your side ... it'll be a few years yet before this is topped out. Then it will be party time in Dubai as we toast yet another awesome super-tall skyscraper added to the list!

If I remember correctly, Pentominium was originally something like 516m, while this thread now says the building will be 618m. That's a massive difference huh. As we know, our friend here, BRAMBLE, has said that the spire is not included yet, so we will have to wait and see what happens on this I guess. After Burj Dubai, this will be tops in Dubai. Without the spire, this building will still be a massive 516m and will still be taller than Burj Al Alam. Albeit by not very much. Nothing wrong with that! But I'm definitely hoping for 618m.

I'm hoping for 618m. as well. And even though a 102m. spire seems like cheating, it goes really well with the building. It's gonna be the pinnacle of the tallest block!

Yes, it does seem like cheating alright, but this spire looks just great with the overall design. It really compliments the building.

The incredible thing about Pentominium is that it will be situated on the "tallest block in the world", and yet, it will tower over all them! It will stand at just over 200m (with spire) above Princess Tower alone! Can you imagine!? I think Damac Heights (which is on hold) comes closest at 426m, or something like that. Double the height of Infinity! INSANELY BIG!!

so the excavation goes down an additonal 4 metres. Any idea about how deep the excavation at BAA will go? should be something very similar.

It is insanely big, but isn't Marina 106 the second tallest? I heard that it is going to be 1385ft. Besides, it is unlikely that Damac Heights is going to get built. I think Damac's best in the tallest block will have to be Ocean Heights for now. However, you won't hear me complaining if Damac Heights actually gets built! It sure would be nice for the gap between Infinity Tower and Emarate Marina to have something tall. It would balance the tallest block.

Well, that's true, if Damac Heights never materializes then yes, Marina 106 will be the second tallest. I hope DH does get built however as another 400m+ in that location would be awesome indeed! A very nice balance, as you say. There isn't much between them anyway....something like 4-6m I think, so not too shabby huh.

I'm just imagining the views in every direction from the top levels of Pentominium.....priceless! But these views come with one hell of a price tag, too!
