September 4th, 2006 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places

Chelsea Tower is a 250 metre tower located in Sheik Zayed Road, Dubai, UAE. Chelsea Tower is the fifth tallest tower in Dubai.

  • The building next door, Union Tower, was built as Al Salam Tower but changed names when it was sold, so this tower took it over.
  • The most striking feature of the building design is the white diagonal spine that stretches from the ground to its apex at a height of 230 m.
  • At this point, the two sides of the spine join to form a perfect square opening, at the centre of which suspends the 40 m high needle, pushing the overall height of the tower to 250 m.
  • The building services are accommodated on the 19th, 35th and 49th floor.
  • The roof of the car park building behind the tower accommodates a 25 m long swimming pool, gymnasium, squash courts and changing rooms.
