It has more than four times the lean of the Leaning Tower of Pisa at about 3.99 degrees. The 35-storey tower, which opened less than a year ago after five years of construction, is fast becoming one of Abu Dhabi's most famous landmarks.

The extravagance continues high up in the building: the five-star hotel Hyatt Capital Gate occupies the 18th to 33rd floors. It includes 189 guestrooms including the Presidential suite, which costs from approximately $3500.
