Yes for some reason marina crown, le reve and emirates crown are all pretty much deserted right now. It's understandable with le reve since that tower has only two or one apartment per floor so those are probably all second or third homes. Some towers are sometimes bought out by only a few people and they hang on and wait for the price to rise. Yes this is bad.

Most of the towers are occupied but sometimes you see sections of buildings, or even whole buildings themselves completely empty

It also depends what time you take your picture at. Don't expect too many lights on at 3am.

Maybe we should remove the Chicago Spire from the pic - it is on hold. Most likely for many years, if it's gonna be built at all. Sadly.

Do they include the height of the antennaes on top of the buildings?

antennas should be counted if they contribute to the overall design. eg-sears tower, John hancock, ESB ect. basically if a building looks wrong or incomplete with its antenna or spire it should be included in height. antenna like the one on former WTC was one that shouldnt be included.

Forget the spire/antenna discussion... I use the building's highest useable floor to determine the building's stature... this is where pentominium loses to the spire... and by over 200m.

Speaking of usable floor space, what is the typical percentage of floors that are actually USED (occupied) in Dubai? It appears to be a ghost town most of the year. My guess is UNDER 50% occupied... glass (building's) half-full.

You ignore a very simple but meaningfull fact: Most of towers in Dubai are residential and hotels and not offices, therefore people don't have to leave the lights on at night when none is in or when they're at sleep.

That statement, which is true, does not answer my question...

I am interested to know if the occupancys in the Dubai buildings are actually filled with people that actually live there or by people who spend a weekend there or are waiting to flip. It seeems scary to think that these HUGE buildings are occupied by only a few...

The heights are amazing
Pentominium will be the second highest tower in Dubai after Burj tower
