The Burj Al Arab, the Princess Tower in Dubai and The Landmark, Abu Dhabi (under-construction) have one thing in common.
They are all on a list of ‘must-climbs’ for Spiderman.
Alain Robert, the real life “Spiderman”, who has successfully climbed the 828-metre high Burj Khalifa and 70 other skyscrapers around the world, says buildings in the UAE are top of his “wish list”.
The 414-metre high Princess Tower is the world’s tallest residential tower.
It occupies a land area of 37,410 square feet and houses 763 luxury apartments overlooking The Palm Jumeirah.
Speaking exclusively to Emirates 24|7, when asked why he chose Princess Tower, Robert says: “I wish to climb it as it is the tallest residential building in the world.
They [the developer] did contact me six months ago. I went to check the building and haven’t heard from then since.”
Robert is still waiting for clearance from respective authorities on all the building sites. More info
