Chelsea Tower is a 250 m (820 ft) skyscraper located on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The 49 storey building is occupied by a hotel and residential apartments. Chelsea Tower is the 17th-tallest building in Dubai, and one of the tallest residential buildings in the world. The tower stands out in the Dubai skyline due to its distinctive shape, cladding and lighting. When completed in 2005, Chelsea Tower was the fifth tallest building in the city.
Chelsea Tower during its construction took over name of 'Al Salam Tower II' after its older next door building Union Tower, which underwent construction as 'Al Salam Tower' Project but it changed its name after purchase.
Its design features astonishing white diagonal spine that stretches from the ground to its apex at a height of 250m, and two wings of the top ornament join to form a perfectly square aperture, at the centre of which a 40-meter needle is suspended.
