Trident International to resume ‘The Pentominium’ construction
Dubai-based developer, Trident International Holdings is set to restart work, by the third quarter, on the 516-metre tall The Pentominium, billed as the world’s tallest residential tower, Emirates 24-7 has reported, citing a source aware of the project status. “In conjunction with the Dubai Land Department, Trident is actively working on several advanced options towards restarting the construction of this project,” the source said. Located in Dubai Marina, the tower was scheduled for completion in 2013, but work was suspended in August 2011 following the global financial crisis and customer default. When completed, the residential tower will have 122 floors above ground and house 172 luxury penthouses designed by Italian fashion designer Salvatore Ferragamo.
