List of tallest residential buildings in Dubai

This list of the tallest residential buildings in Dubai ranks buildings whose occupiable height is at least 90 percent devoted to residential use.[1] The tallest residential building in Dubai is Princess Tower which stands 414 m (1,358 ft), completed in 2012 surpassing 23 Marina, also in Dubai, and currently stands as second tallest residential building in the city. Elite Residence completed in 2011 is the third tallest residential building while The Marina Torch is the fourth tallest residential building. Since 2005 there is a construction burst of residential towers in Dubai; that results in many record-breaking residential towers in Dubai, besides the completed towers some residential towers are under construction, the tallest one is Pentominium, which was expected to be completed in 2013, but as of 2012 the construction has been halted due to lack of finances, if completed it will become the world's tallest residential building.[2] It will be 516 m (1,693 ft) tall, Dream Dubai Marina, set to rise 432 m (1,417 ft) with 101 floors,and Damac Heights, which was scheduled to be completed in 2014 with 420 m (1,380 ft) and 101 floors. Most of the residential buildings in Dubai are located in Dubai Marina.[3] The tallest block in Dubai marina is the tallest block of skyscrapers in the world, the supertall skyscrapers, such as Pentominium, Princess Tower, Dream Dubai Marina, Elite Residence, 23 Marina, The Marina Torch, and Damac Heights are being built on this block all these skyscrapers are taller than 300 m (980 ft).[4]

Ranking criteria and alternativesEdit

The non-profit international organization Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), formed in 1969, decides which structure is "The World's Tallest Building" and sets the standards by which buildings are measured. It maintains a list of 50 tallest completed residential buildings in Dubai.[5] As of 2013, the council ranked Princess Tower as the tallest, completed residential building in Dubai reaching a height of 414 metres (1,358 ft).[5]

In 1996, in response to a dispute over whether the Petronas Towers or the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) was taller, the council listed and ranked buildings in four categories: the height of the structural or architectural top, the height of the highest occupied floor, the height to the top of the roof (removed as a category in November 2009), [6] and the height to the top of any part of the building. A tall building's "tallest" rank therefore depends on its spires and antennas as well as the height of its architectural top.[7] For example, the Petronas Towers, with its spire, is ranked higher than the Willis Tower with its antennas, despite the Petronas Towers' lower roof.[8]

CompletedEdit

This list ranks completed and topped out residential buildings in Dubai that stand at least 180 metres (591 ft) tall, based on standard height measurement. An equal sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings.
