Twisting tower wins award
Dubai , October 26, 2007
Dubai's Infinity Tower has won the 2007 CNBC Arabian Property Award for “Best High Rise Architecture in the Middle East”.
The iconic twisting tower being built for Cayan Investment & Development has also been nominated for “Best High Rise Architecture” in the prestigious International Property Awards in Las Vegas.
The latest win follows Infinity Tower’s stunning performance in the same awards last year when it won the international “Best Architecture” category, as well as awards for the “Best Development, Dubai” and “Best Architecture – Multiple Units, Dubai”, “Best Developer Website, Dubai” for www.infinitytower.com and “Best Property Marketing, Dubai” categories in the Arabian Property Awards.
Ahmed Al Hatti, chairman of Cayan, says the latest win and international nomination is further confirmation that Infinity Tower is in a class of its own when it comes to cutting edge architecture.
“Winning best architecture awards for two years, running against some very impressive competition is a very big achievement and we are obviously highly delighted with the results,” he said.
Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merill, known for other iconic landmarks such as the Sears Tower in Chicago and Burj Dubai in Dubai, Infinity Tower positions itself as the most exclusive address in the world.
The 80-storey building will stand at 330 metres, the highest twisting tower in the world.
It has spectacular design features affording panoramic ocean, Palm and marina views aided by a complete 90º twist from top to bottom and architectural and construction techniques specifically designed for this project. The interior theme will be very modern to complement the external design.
Infinity Tower offers one-four bedroom residential apartments with duplexes and penthouses on the higher levels. At street level, there will be designated shopping and retail outlets for both residents and visitors.
Every Infinity apartment will have contemporary internationally styled interiors, marble and wood finishes, and premium fixtures and fittings. There will be high-speed Internet and access to digital/satellite TV, state-of-the-art air conditioning, and a comprehensive automation system to control lights, air-conditioning and other functions from a central handset.
The building’s residential amenities will include a fully landscaped podium with a rooftop park, outdoor infinity pool, whirlpool and children’s pool, located on the seventh floor. Other amenities include a health spa with treatment rooms, a gymnasium, conference rooms, cigar lounge, a fully-equipped nursery, and a fully enclosed parking garage with state-of-the-art security.-TradeArabia News Service
