Dubai a city of skyscrapers, Dubai is known for its towers. From the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest, standing 828 metres high, to the Princess Tower, the tallest residential building in the world at 413.4m (101 stories) high, Dubai knows how to build them. Next came the world’s tallest hotel. The 77-story twin towers of the JW Marriott Marquis reach 355 metres into the sky. Now, the city has unveiled its newest of Dubai attractions, Cayan Tower.
The Cayan Tower is the Newest of Dubai Attractions to Grace the City’s Already Amazing Skyline.
Cayan Tower, touching the sky at 310 metres, is now the world’s tallest twisted tower. Although similar to the Turning Torso building in Sweden, the Cayan Tower’s design is more unique. With a structure that’s twisted from each level, every floor is rotated by 1.2˚ to complete a full 90˚ spiral. Its helix shape adorns the Dubai Marina skyline.
Construction began on this 1 billion AED ( $273 million USD) building which originally known as the Infinity Tower in February 2006, but stalled with the economic downturn in 2009. Now standing proudly at 75 stories, it’s ready to go with its 570 plush studio, 1,2,3 and 4 bedroom apartments, duplexes, penthouses, offering amazing panoramic views of the Marina and the Palm Jumeirah. The tower will also house a spa, a nursery, tennis courts, a swimming pool, a state-of-the-art gym, as well as conference rooms, and a 24-hour concierge.
The twist in the architecture will give residents of the lower floors a beautiful view of the Dubai Marina’s waterfront promenade, and those in the upper floors with have a grand view of the Arabian Gulf.
Although the tower unusual design did create some challenges for its designers, Skidmore Owings & Merrill LLP, these developers are no strangers to creating exclusive, world-class Dubai attractions. They are also the designers behind the infamous Burj Khalifa.
