Dubai Marina is set to get almost 700 new apartments after the handover of a building that is said to be the world’s third-highest residential tower.
Elite Residence, fifth from left in the photo above, a 91-storey structure, that stands at 381 metres, has 696 apartments and is capable of housing 1,500 people.
Princess Tower, fourth from right, is the world’s tallest residential building. The Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building at 828 metres, includes apartments but is not considered to be a residential tower.
To qualify for the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat residential list, a building must be at least 90 per cent residential. Dubai is currently home to the world’s top four tallest residential towers.
