The Pentominium project is to be completed by the second half of 2013, the project’s main contractor Arabian Construction Company (ACC) told Construction Week.

Construction on the project broke ground on July 26 of this year and so far piling works have been completed.

“We are in the process of carrying out pile breaking and excavation. The total job shall be completed in the second half of 2013,” said ACC managing director Hassan Auji.

The first milestone is set to be reached by the end of this year when raft foundation works are set to be completed, according to Auji.

Previously Construction Week reported that Trident International Holdings awarded the US $400 million (AED1.46 billion) contract, which covers the construction of 170,000m2 of built up area.

The 124-storey Pentominium – to be based at Dubai Marina – will be one of the world's tallest man-made structures and is projected to be the second-tallest building in the world after Burj Dubai.

"Pentominium is a unique project that escalates the concept of luxury living to new heights and with construction major ACC on board, the project has joined a bouquet of brand partnerships we have forged for the development,” said Trident International Holdings executive director and CEO Wazir Daredia.

The Pentominium will be the tallest all-residential building in the world upon completion and it currently has the highest projected height of any residential building under construction, according to Aedas, the project designers.
