70

Abu Dhabi: An Abu Dhabi tower has been recognized as the “furthest-leaning man-made tower” in the world by Guinness World Records a local newspapers reported on June 6. The 160-metre Capital Gate tower, developed by the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Company, leans at 18 degrees — over four times the angle of Italy’s famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, Khaleej Times reported.

ADNEC said the tower earned the record following an evaluation by Guinness World Records that began in January, the month the tower’s exterior was completed, Gulf News reported.

The 35-storey tower’s 18-degree angle is achieved by staggering the floor plates from the 12th floor up, the newspaper added.
