  • The 64-storey building has 258 hotel rooms from floors 16 to 38 as part of Dubai’s second Mandarin Oriental Hotel and 229 residential units on the upper floors of the building. There are also 185,345 square feet of office space, 11 parking floors and a helipad.

  • In total the tower measures 1.8 million square feet.

  • The residential sections of the tower are supported by sports facilities, retail outlets, restaurants and cafes in an attempt to create self-contained living quarters.

  • The exterior features a lighting rig which can be adjusted throughout the year to reflect various events and occasions.

  • The tower has the world’s tallest ceramic façade which helps regulate the internal temperature of the building as well as reducing the surrounding noise.

  • A series of vertical gardens designed by Amsterdam-based UNStudio help to reduce carbon dioxide levels in building.

  • There is a light museum inside the building which showcases new and historic technologies in the field.

  • Wasl Tower offers views of the Burj Khalifa and is directly linked to the nearby metro station.

  • Situated almost equidistant between the Burj Khalifa and City Walk, right beside the Coca-Cola Arena, the tower is connected by a bridge to City Walk.

  • Work began on the project in 2016 but came to a standstill because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
