About Infinity Tower

Infinity Tower is a skyscraper under construction by Cayan Real Estate Investment & Development in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The project resumed construction in July 2008, after a delay caused by the collapse of a nearby wall and subsequent flooding of the construction site. Construction of the 330 m (1,080 ft) building began in February 2006 and when completed it will have 73 stories and be the world's tallest high rise building with a twist of 90˚. The tower will twist similar to the Turning Torso in Malmö, Sweden, and other recent projects in Doha and elsewhere, and will be the tallest in the world to do so. However, unlike the Turning Torso, which is a series of cantilevered plates rotated about a straight structure, Infinity Tower's much larger floor plates actually require the structure to be twisted as it raises from level to level. Each floor is rotated by 1.2˚ to achieve the full 90˚ spiral, creating the shape of a helix. The tower will have residential apartments, conference rooms, tennis courts, pools, a state of the art gymnasium, a nursery and a spa. An earlier design was for a taller, darker tower 372 m (1,220 ft) tall with 93 floors. The project of the property
