At a height of 413.36 metres, The Princess Tower, conceptualized by Tameer Holding Investments, a Conglomerate in Construction Industry, Dubai and designed by Eng. Adnan Saffarini, Dubai, strikes an innovatively elegant look as a tall skyscraper laced with world class amenities at the heart of Dubai Marina.
The idea was to have wide open corridors and balconies covered with eco friendly greenery on the outside of the building and free areas cut crosswise into the body of the building, this high-rise stands out for its great transparency. All the 763 apartments enjoy light and air from all sides, allowing for particularly sustainable living conditions in this semi tropical region sans dependability on air conditioning.
The tower is to be nominated as a completed building that stands out tall for it special aesthetics, pioneering design integration into its urban context, sustainability, innovative technology and cost efficiency.
The Princess Tower as being the tallest residential tower in the world as it contains 100 floors. Interestingly, the 90th floor of the tower (the highest floor perhaps if counting residential floors only) is being called a villa, occupying the entire floor. Expected date of completion is September 2012.
