The "glazed diamond shaped pinnacle"

The Trump International Hotel & Tower in Dubai will be the tallest structure on Palm Jumeirah and is expected to be completed in summer 2011. The skyscraper will have 399 freehold residential apartments and a 378-room hotel. It is a 62-story, stainless steel and glass masterpiece of architecture. It will also be a huge challenge for engineers. The towers stand on a four-story bisected podium structure converging at the 40th-floor to create the building’s glazed diamond shaped pinnacle.
