New Dubai skyscraper will have an infinity pool that wraps right around it – and at 700 feet it’ll be one of the highest in the world
- The infinity pool will be located on the 50th floor of the 52 storey The Palm Tower
- It will cover 775 square metres and will need 930,000 litres of water to fill it
- It will have views across the Palm Jumeirah, Arabian Gulf and the Dubai skyline
Swimmers will be able to go for a dip almost 700 feet up at this new Dubai skyscraper, in an infinity pool that’s set to be one of the world’s highest.
The pool will be located on the 50th floor of the 52 storey The Palm Tower, which is currently under construction on Palm Jumeirah island.
And as the pool covers 775 square metres (8,340 square feet) and borders all four sides of the building, it will boast stunning views across the Palm Jumeirah as well as the Arabian Gulf and the Dubai skyline.
Everything is going swimmingly: The rooftop infinity pool set to open on the 50th floor of the 52-storey The Palm Tower in Dubai
Construction has already started on the 930,000-litre pool, which is due to open next year.
When the whole building is finished, The Palm Tower will have a 289-room St Regis hotel, 432 luxury residences and an array of dining and leisure facilities.
The hotel occupies the first 18 floors, with fully-furnished studios and one, two and three-bedroom apartments on the upper floors.
Above the pool will be a podium housing a 51st-level speciality restaurant and a 52nd storey public viewing deck, 787 feet high.
Construction of the rooftop dining viewing deck complex will begin soon.
Currently, around 850 construction workers are on-site at The Palm Tower. This will rise to more than 1,500 when internal fit-out gets underway in the next few weeks.

Fit out of the St. Regis – due to open later this year – has already begun.
The Palm Tower is directly connected to the under-construction Nakheel Mall – the access point for the public viewing deck – and its 350 shops, restaurants and attractions.
Nakheel Mall, which has its own Palm Monorail station, is due for completion this year.
