If you have been following it, then it would be obvious.

World's tallest residential tower set to welcome occupants soon

The Torch in Dubai Marina overtakes Q1 Tower in Australia



Dubai: Dubai's property market has had its share of tall claims from developers, with many of them never making it beyond the drawing board. But this developer has certainly delivered on its promise.

At 348 metres and 86 floors, The Torch in Dubai Marina has won formal recognition as the world's tallest residential tower, surpassing the earlier claimant, the Q1 Tower in Australia's Gold Coast (323 metres).

To lay claim to the title, The Torch met the requirement set by the likes of Emporis Standards Committee and the Council on Tall Building and Urban Habitat, in that a building should at least have 90 per cent residential use to qualify.

The Torch's newfound status sits well with what Dubai and its towers have achieved in the recent past, most notably by the Burj Khalifa's 828 metres. In fact, Dubai has got strong representation in the Emporis Standards Committee's list of the world's tallest residential towers.

The Torch, a development by UK-based Select Group, is set to take in its first residents next month. While chuffed at the new accolade, the developer is also sitting pretty as more than 80 per cent of the 676 apartment units have buyers.

The units carry a price tag of Dh1,000 a square foot and up. So what made investors hold on in a soft market?

Prime location

"The prime location and design was the key offering, in addition to us offering lengthy payment plans beyond the completion dates," said Rahail Eslam, CEO. "If we look at Torch prices when we originally sold, they are still resilient in today's market.

"The properties were sold at reasonable levels and we had active construction throughout the tough economic period. All of these taken together certainly contributed in retaining the majority of the investors."

According to a spokesperson at Better Homes' Dubai Marina office, quality builds have been able to hold their market value, currently averaging around Dh1,100-Dh1,200 a square foot, "while poorly constructed properties are having a harder time matching market rates".

The investments were substantial at Dh665 million. "The group has invested substantial equity to complete our projects," said Eslam.

So what's the deal with these figures? Many sources, like CTBUH, claim 348m. In comparison to the neighbors, that's as much possible as 338m, I think. And counting one floor at the round roof part and 5 for the podium, I agree with 86 overall... at least more than "80 fl" from the recent thread title.

Dubai’s new world record - The Torch

The 86-storey tower at Dubai Marina is 348m tall and 25m higher than Q1 Tower of Gold Coast in Australia, the previous record holder

By StaffPublished Saturday, April 30, 2011

Dubai has yet another world record in its name - the world’s tallest residential tower - ‘The Torch'.

Acording to a report in Khaleej Times, the 86-storey tower at Dubai Marina is 348 metres tall and 25 metres higher than Q1 Tower of Gold Coast in Australia, the previous holder of this distinction.

The tower is ready for handover next month. It comprises 676 apartments, of which 90 per cent has been sold at prices ranging from Dh800 to Dh1,000 per square foot.

I love it how the developer lists Emporis in front of the CTBUH .... but it's bound to happen when you spend so much time in the UAE section of the SSC
