Dubai, Jun 14: Dubai has inaugurated the world's tallest twisted tower built at a cost of $US272 million ($A288.32 million), setting yet another record for skyscrapers and other engineering marvels.





The 310-metre, 75-storey residential Cayan Tower is twisted at 90 degrees from top to bottom and was inaugurated earlier this week in Dubai Marina - a man-made canal overlooking the Gulf.

Developer Cayan Real Estate Investment and Development Company said 80 per cent of its residential units had already been sold.

Construction began in 2006, but was delayed due to major technical problems and the 2009 economic downturn in Dubai triggered by the global financial crisis.
