Guinness World Records has officially recognised TAMEER's Princess Tower as the world's tallest residential building, towering over the Dubai Marina skyline at 414m from base to tip.
The prestigious Dubai Marina development stands a staggering 107 storeys tall and encompasses six basement floors, one ground floor, 100 above-ground levels and 8 retail stores. The tower occupies a land area of 37,410 square feet, housing 763 luxury apartments, including one, two, three and four bedroom apartments in addition to penthouse apartments overlooking Palm Jumeirah.
"This is one instance when saying we feel on top of the world is completely justified," said Federico Tauber, President of TAMEER. "This is a very proud moment for TAMEER and for the city of Dubai, which now holds the twin distinction of being home to the world's tallest building and the world's tallest residential building." – Emirates News Agency, WAM
