The location at SZR isn't good! There are enough towers there! They should build it in DIFC, IMO

Construction to start on Dubai’s first new 100-storey plus tower in more than six years

The local Al-Qabdah Building Contracting has begun mobilising for an estimated $190m contract to build a 106-storey residential tower in Dubai Marina.

The main contract was awarded in December last year, and is the first construction deal for a 100-storey-plus tower to be awarded in Dubai for more than six years. The project is the latest demonstration of the confidence that has returned to the emirate’s real estate and construction sectors.

The local Middle East Foundations is completing the shoring and piling works before work on the main construction contract can start. The local National Engineering Bureau (NEB) is the consultant. The client is the local GGICO Properties.

Most probably the piling is completed and they should be exposing and breaking the caps and then preparing their rebar

There are at least 3 mobile cranes working at this site, which indicates that they are already putting rebar down for the raft

Either way, this is U/C

Great news!
432 P.A. is only one meter taller than Marina 106. Couldn't they install a little antenna on the top, so it will f.ex. be 428m tall?

If everything goes according to plan, Pentominium will be completed before 106 so it won't matter anyways if this one is taller than 432 or not

If the developers read this thread and agreed with you that the building should be taller than 432 PA they should add another floor, not some little "cheating stick".
