Dubai’s Princess Tower wins Guinness World Record

Guinness World Records has officially recognised Tameer’s 414m-high Princess Tower in Dubai Marina as the world’s tallest residential building.

The 107-storey development occupies 3,476m2, with 763 luxury apartments and eight retail stores.

Federico Tauber, president of Tameer, said: “This is one instance when saying we feel on top of the world is completely justified.

“This is a very proud moment for Tameer and for the city of Dubai, which now holds the twin distinction of being home to the world’s tallest building and the world’s tallest residential building.”
