About Cayan Tower, Dubai

Formerly known as Infinity Tower,  Cayan Tower has a helical structure that was renamed to celebrate its uniqueness. Dubai Marina Cayan Tower took 8 years to complete. Upon its inauguration ceremony in 2013 by Cayan Investment and Development, 80% units were sold out even though interior fittings were in progress.

The project has already been honoured by a number of awards including Arabian Property Awards, International Property Awards and Chicago Athenaeum. When launched, it was the world’s tallest tower with a twisted structure. Cayan Tower currently ranks as the 21st tallest building in Dubai and counted amongst the top 10 famous buildings in Dubai.

The property’s location is another positive element connecting residents to key areas of the city. Cayan Tower, Dubai Marina enjoys a central location with views of the Arabian Sea and Palm Jumeirah. This 75-storey residential wonder stands 1,010 feet above the ground.

The unique architecture is the idea of Skidmore Owings and Merrill, the great minds behind the world’s tallest structures, Burj Khalifa and Trump Tower in Chicago. The helical shape of the tower outshines other projects in the area and functions as a safety measure against the northerly winds, which often carry sand and dust.

Dubai Marina is a one-of-a-kind residential destination. The neighbourhood is home to some of the most iconic skyscrapers offering panoramic views of the man-made Marina. Also, it is home to many commercial buildings, elite restaurants, cafes and famous shopping malls. Among its various record-breaking skyscrapers, Cayan Tower is a tall residential tower with a twist. With its unique structure and architectural design, not only it allows splendid views of Dubai Marina but is also a stunning addition to Dubai’s real estate market.
