Very nice to see this done, but I liked the older name better. Of course, there are several other towers with the name "Infinity" (the building in Brisbane readily comes to mind), but I always thought it reflected the design pretty well here, so I wished they would've kept it.

The beauty is that the tower's entire structure twists for real, it's not a cheat like most of the "twisting" structures out there, that are actually just regular buildings with changing floor plates, creating the illusion of an "twisting" structure

The top needs a wash.
Also, is the tower accessible from the Marina Walk yet? When I was there some weeks ago, it was fenced off.

I wanted to write a cynic comment about it but I reviewed it.

And you love dubai?

Always the same comment. They come to build in Dubai, because in Dubai they are in better conditions than in India or Pakistan.

Cayan Tower, Dubai, United Arab Emirates










SOM | (c) Tim Griffith

Quote:
Friday 14 Jun 2013

Dubai has welcomed another record-breaking tower this week as the Cayan Tower (formerly Infinity Tower) was inaugurated by its developer, Saudi Arabia-based Cayan Investment & Development. Cayan Tower is a 75-storey, 307m-high residential structure which is set apart by a 90 degree shift of its floorplates between the base and top, making it the tallest twisted tower in the world.

Should this even be classed as a supertall? It's only those bits of string and bunting on the top which take it up to that height, and the BMU I suppose.
