Do those buying in Dubai wish to live in the highest building?

Some property investors buying in Dubai may be drawn to the emirate because it is a region of luxury, opulence and superlatives.Indeed, those particularly drawn by the latter could have their eye on the Princess Tower, because Albawaba has reported this structure has been named in the Guinness World Records as the tallest residential building in the world.The Princess Tower, which was developed by property group Tameer, is 414m from base to tip, with 107 floors, six basement levels, a ground floor and 100 above-ground levels.Furthermore, the structure includes eight retail outlets in addition to the residential apartments it houses.The property is spread across an area of 37,410 sq ft and comprises 763 luxurious apartments.Investors interested in procuring one of the units at the Princess Tower can choose from one, two, three and four-bed flats, as well as penthouse accommodations overlooking The Palm.President of Tameer Frederico Tauber said: "This is one instance when saying we feel on top of the world is completely justified."He added that the developer is very proud for having the Princess Towers appear in the Guinness World Record book in 2012.Mr Tauber stated now Dubai can now boast the "twin distinction of being home to the world's tallest building and the world's tallest residential building".Residents of the Princess Tower can take advantage of a recreation level on its 97th floor, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a gym and aerobics studio, sauna and games room.Furthermore, it has car parking, a landscaped podium and high-speed elevators, so those with keys to one of its upscale apartments can travel quickly and easily to their sky high homes.This is the latest feather in the city's cap, as it is also home to the Burj Khalifa, which is the absolute tallest building in the world scraping the sky at 828m, in addition to having the largest number of storeys and an elevator with the longest distance.
