Dubai loyalists may find yet another reason to celebrate; the world’s tallest residential building has just risen from a seedy siesta on the grounds of this posh middle-east city: the grandeur is in the fact that it stands 107 storeys tall and it’s meant for a living! Viewed from the highest level of perception, it is no good or bad. We think we now know why the phrase was coined. Seated at a height from where the earth is but picturesque, the judgments do go astray. Encompassing 6 basement floors and 100 above the ground, excluding the ground floor, this went straight into the pages of a historic book named the Guinness Book, and rightly so. Located at the posh and prestigious Dubai Marina development, Tameer’s Princess Tower stands a staggering 414m tall and occupies 37,410 sq ft, housing 763 luxury apartments, including one, two, three, and four-bedroom apartments in addition to penthouse apartments overlooking Palm Jumeirah.
Once home to the tallest towers, Dubai is now enjoying twice the fame and, no, not a bit shared. So, we guess that’s what it takes to feel on top of the world? You decide.
