Dubai’s Cayan Tower has opened on Wednesday, making it the tallest twisted skyscraper in the world.

The Cayan Real Estate Investment and Development Company inaugurated the 1,017-foot-tall building, located on the Dubai Marina, reported the Khaleej Times. The Cayan Tower was formerly called the Infinity Tower.

“In a city like Dubai with sophisticated world-class developments, Cayan wanted to develop a project to stay within this space, and provide a remarkable lifestyle development with these characteristics to the Dubai skyline,” Cayan Group president and chairman Ahmed Alhatti told the paper.

He added: “We know there won’t be any Cayan Tower in the world and this will be the only one.”

The building has 75-stories and a 90-degree curve from the top to the bottom, according to Gulf Business. It includes residential buildings, a tennis court, pools, a nursery, a spa, a gym, and other amenities.

“The building has been built according to the highest international standards for towers,” Alhatti told Gulf Business.

Some 80 percent of the apartments have already been sold.
