  • Ciel Tower is a 82-storey mixed-use building under development in Dubai Marina, Dubai.
  • The estimated handover date is 2023.
  • Construction began in May 2016.
  • The project is being developed by The First Group and is owned by Immo Prestige Holdings Limited.
  • The architect of the project is Norr Group Consultants International Ltd.
  • China Railway 18th Bureau Group has been appointed as the main contractor and the piling work is being carried out by Zetas Zamin Teknolojisi.
  • The substructure contains one basement level which is dedicated to parking.
  • The project is located on plot 3920235.
  • Amenities will include a health club, a luxury spa, a rooftop infinity pool, a rooftop terrace, an all-day dining restaurant and food and beverage facilities.
  • From Ciel Tower it takes roughly 21 minutes to drive to Dubai Mall, 12 minutes to Palm Jumeirah, 17 minutes to Burj Al Arab and 10 minutes to The Walk JBR.
  • Dubai International Airport (DXB) is roughly 29 minutes' drive and the new Al Maktoum International Airport is roughly 35 minutes' drive. All durations are calculated by Google Maps and assume the fastest route in typical traffic conditions.
  • The tower was originally launched in 2016 as "S Residence by Immo Prestige" and piling was completed.

  • In 2018 the project was taken over by The First Group and a new design was launched under the name of Ciel Tower.

  • Ciel Tower has 1,042 guest rooms including 150 suites along with restaurants, cafes and a business lounge.

  • The supertall height of the building was increased to 365 metres, higher than the original design. The top of the tower has a glass observation deck providing panoramic views of Palm Jumeirah, Blue Waters Island, Dubai Harbour and the Arabian Gulf.

  • Visitors will also be able to take in the sights from a rooftop swimming pool and restaurants.

  • The hotel was designed in a Japanese style by Yahya Jan of architectural firm NORR. 

  • NORR is behind some of Dubai's best-known landmarks, including the Atlantis and Shangri-La Hotels.

  • Jan was tasked with designing the skyscraper on a triangular plot of land at Dubai Marina with an area of just 2,500 square meters, small for a building of that height.

  • The architect says that 'the curved forms of the glass and metal building are meant to gently reflect in the setting sun, while the design scheme emphasizes the verticality of the tower and is meant as a response to vertical living'.

  • The design won three prizes at the International Property Awards in December 2019, for Best International Hotel Architecture, Best Hotel Architecture Arabia, and Best High-rise Architecture Arabia.

  • Ciel stands 365 metres high, making it the world’s tallest hotel, nine metres taller than Gevora Hotel, also in Dubai.

  • The project is energy efficient, using 25% less power for air conditioning than is typical for similar buildings.

  • Ciel Tower takes its name from the French word for 'sky'.
