#18. Princess Tower

untitled

 

Princess Tower set the point of reference for every single residential tower, both in Dubai and around the globe. Its prime location places it among various luxuries including a few shopping centers, entertainment venues, and social attractions. An adjoining cable car connects the tower to whatever is left of the sprawling city. At the time of its completion in 2012, the building was the tallest all-private tower on the planet, a title that was bound to change hands quickly in the coming years given the quantity of tall, private towers set for completion at that time.
