Infinity Tower

Infinity Tower is a skyscraper recently completed by Cayan Real Estate Investment & Development in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Construction of the 330 m (1,080 ft) building began in February 2006 and was completed in 2012.
The completed project is 73 stories tall and is the world's tallest high rise building with a twist of 90˚. The tower twist is similar to the Turning Torso in Malmö, Sweden, and other recent projects in Doha and elsewhere, and will be the tallest in the world to do so. 
However, unlike the Turning Torso, which is a series of cantilevered plates rotated about a straight structure, Infinity Tower's much larger floor plates actually require the structure to be twisted as it raises from level to level. Each floor is rotated by 1.2˚ to achieve the full 90˚ spiral, creating the shape of a helix. The tower contains residential apartments, conference rooms, tennis courts, pools, a state of the art gymnasium, a nursery and a spa.

Laticrete is proud to have been involved with this incredible project.  This outstanding project depends on Laticrete tile and stone installation materials in a wide range of areas.
