This Dubai Marina hotel will become world's tallest when it opens in 2023
Dubai has no dearth of tall buildings. Just look around and you'll find a lot of very tall buildings. Dubai already has the world's tallest building and the world's tallest hotel as well. But there's soon going to be a new contender for the title of the world's tallest hotel.
Ciel, The First Group’s project currently under development in Dubai Marina, will become the world's tallest hotel when it opens by early 2023.
It was originally the JW Marriott Marquis hotel but was recently overthrown by Gevora hotel by just three feet.
The 82-level Ciel in Dubai Marina, which will be four metres taller than the emirate's current title holder, the Gevora on Sheikh Zayed Road, has outshone rivals to claim the top prize in three major categories at the prestigious 2019 International Property Awards.
Designed by architectural firm, Norr, Ciel will reach a height of 360.4 metres and will house 1,209 luxury suites and serviced residences upon completion, First Group said in a statement.
Given that this is Dubai, we're sure there will be a lot more building in the running for the world's tallest hotel accolade come 2023.
