The tower is located in Dubai Marina and stands at a staggering 414 metres from base to tip. Princess Tower has 107 storeys with six basement floors, one ground floor, 100 above-ground levels and 8 retail stores.
The property is spread over an area of 37,410 square feet, housing 763 luxury apartments, including one, two, three and four bedroom apartments plus penthouse apartments overlooking Palm Jumeirah.
