this is one sexy building....Dubai got it right on this one...and not to dis a famous building on the Gold Coast but when the Pentominium takes over as worlds tallest residental tower...this one has a lil bit more appeal.

Looks like an excellent building. It really dwarfs the other ones though. I really like the shape of it, and waterfront structures are nice.

It still has a ways to go in my opinion...
Yeah if you base your comments only in history, of course this cities have more density and great buildings no doubt about it, but I´m talking of the present and what´s happening in Dubai is a phenomenon that isn´t happening in the US and that´s why I say there´s no comparison, but I agree with you in the fact that in this big US cities there´s a different sense maybe a more organic one, because of the time it took to create what you see now, maybe they´re not so artificial like Dubai, but still the number of projects and they´re heights in Dubai overpasses the ones in the US.

Well, In a way it is. It's more of a city on anabolic steroids. Hands down Impressive, but I do fear for it's longevity...

It will fit in nicely IMO. Heres a future render of that area of Dubai Marina.... See all the other high rises to the left? The Pentominium will fit in well just behind them

[IMG]http://i14.************/30tkopc.jpg[/IMG]


Here is another render of the completed Dubai Marina... The Pentominium will look awesome in the cluster to the far right of the pic

[IMG]http://i19.************/307ucue.jpg[/IMG]


And this area is already coming along nicely.....

He was referring to the economic growth of the city. If all the buildings gowing up are being used or empty (artificial). Which Dubai is not empty and it is clearly occupied. Not a Las Vegas spin off for sure!
