Pentominium - unusual house of the future and probably a new wonder of the world, which will become a new landmark in the real estate of luxury and one of the tallest skyscrapers in the world. It is built in the prestigious world-renowned area of Dubai Marina, overlooking the serene Arabian Sea and the tallest - 120 floors - and most luxurious apartment building in the world. Mr. Wazir Darediya, Executive Director, Trident International Holdings said that we decided to expand the boundaries and create the concept of an ideal place of residence, which would be a "luxury at altitude.
The Pentominium is a supertall skyscraper currently under construction in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. When completed, the residential tower will be 516 m (1,693 ft) tall, with 122 floors above ground. It was designed by architects Aedas and funded by Trident International Holdings. The AED 1.46 billion (US$400 million) construction contract was awarded to Arabian Construction Company (ACC).
