P-17 is a mixed use skyscraper proposed for construction in Dubai, United Arab Emirates for the Tasameem group.[1] The design is for a 379 m (1,243 ft) tall building, comprising 78 floors.[2] The building will accommodate offices, a 5-star hotel and serviced apartments, and 176 residential apartments on the upper 19 floors.[3]

Construction was planned to start in November 2008,[2] but construction has still not started. As a result of the financial crisis that hit Dubai in late 2009, P-17 is unlikely to be built.[citation needed]
