Dubai has broken yet another world record! Adding to the Burj Khalifa’s status as the world’s tallest mixed use tower, Dubai is now home to the world’s tallest residential only development. The Torch, located in Dubai Marina just minutes away from Tecom in New Dubai, has knocked the previous record holder on Australia’s Gold Coast off the top spot. At 348 metres tall, the towering Torch seals the record by 25 metres. However, it may not hold onto that status for very long! Over the next two years, the Dubai Marina area will become home to not just one, but SIX of the world’s top ten tallest residential towers! Scaling the height ranks then will be the Pentominium by Trident International Holdings, which is due to stand at a staggering 516 metres high upon completion in 2013.
