Infinity Tower

Infinity Tower is a skyscraper under construction by Palma Real Estate in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The project resumed construction in July 2008, after a delay caused by the collapse of a nearby wall and subsequent flooding of the construction site.

Construction of the 330 m (1,080 ft) building began in February 2006 and when completed it will have 73 stories and be the world's tallest high rise building with a twist of 90˚. The tower will twist exactly like the Turning Torso in Malmö, Sweden, and will be the tallest to do so. Each floor is rotated by 1.2˚ to achieve the full 90˚ spiral, creating the shape of a helix. The tower will have residential apartments, conference rooms, tennis courts, pools, a state of the art gymnasium, a nursery and a spa. An earlier design was for a taller, darker tower 372 m (1,220 ft) tall with 93 floors.

The project of the property development company CAYAN, its architects were Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) and will be located in the Dubai Marina.

As of 20 November 2010, 73 floors had been completed.

Site flooding

The tower's construction was on hold for a year and a half after the foundation site of the tower was flooded when the wall that held back the Dubai Marina was breached on 7 February 2007. Witnesses described a loud cracking sound, followed by an inflow of sand and water.

Construction of Infinity tower was resumed in late 2008, and the tower is expected to be completed by 2012.
