Is it a Wind Turbine, a Giant Socket Wrench or a Spin Washing machine? No It’s Another Dubai Skyscraper

The latest in the ‘look at me, look at me’ line up is Anara Tower. It is not trying to be the tallest as it will appear stunted (only 2,150 feet), 500 feet shorter than the Burj Dubai.

The Anara signature will be the architectural zaniness with the propeller at the top and the glass-enclosed restaurant. The rest will enclose the 300 expensive apartments, 250 luxury hotel rooms and gardens on all of its 27 floors.

Anara’s sponsor is the Emiratí company, Tameer, and the design is the work of the British firm Atkins.
