Infinity Tower, Dubai Marina by Skidmore Owings Merrill

hargis_130309_028_smallIt hasn’t been topped out yet, but I couldn’t resist shooting it anyway — this is the Infinity Tower, Dubai Marina, scheduled for completion later this year. Just a few degrees of twist to go!

When it’s done, it’ll be about 300+ meters and 76 floors of residential awesomeness. One thing I’ll be very interested in is how they plan to clean the windows. And there’s always a plan. Some of these buildings require expensive and amazing custom-built apparatus to access the facade. The Burj Khalifa went old-school.

Rapelling would be an option for Infinity, but with a, uh….twist. (sorry, I couldn’t resist that one).

I scored the perfect platform to shoot from, and got a nice series. InshAllah, I’ll get a shot of the finished tower later this year!


And as a bonus, here’s a fuzzy pre-dawn BTS shot:
