The two wings of the top ornament join to form a perfectly square aperture, at the centre of which a 40-metrer needle is suspended.
The building services are accommodated on the 19th, 35th and 49th floors.
The roof of the car park building behind the tower accommodates a 25m swimming pool, gymnasium, squash courts and changing rooms.
The building next door, Union Tower, was built as 'Al Salam Tower' but changed names when it was sold, so this tower took it over before changing its own name to 'Chelsea Tower'.
