The Knowledge

Remember when climber Alain Robert – dubbed the French Spiderman – climbed Dubai’s Cayan Tower last month?

His impressed feat definitely caused a stir worldwide, not just in the city’s Marina area.

Now it has been revealed the Cayan Group, has sold out of the properties they were promoting after they entered their first phase of purchases.

Cayan Cantara residences enjoyed a grand party at the Grosvenor House on April 12 – attended by VIP guests – and less than two weeks later, the luxurious residence and hotel apartments are gone thanks to the recognition its unique design and facilities got as a result.

Now in the second phase of selling, there are limited number of units on the market being offered to the public with special prices.

The Middle East’s premier Property Developer and Real Estate Investment group drew attention to their latest venture by getting 52-year-old Alain to tackle the 75-storey Cayan Tower, without a safety harness. It’s a landmark officially declared by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2013 as the globe’s tallest twisted tower standing at 307 meters high.

To prepare he drank plenty of water and devoured only a croissant and a latte shortly before his 8pm stunt, opting to have a more substantial meal later.

It seemed whatever his specific plan was worked as he completed the climb in 65 minutes as opposed to the 90 minutes he predicted.

Residents were asked to keep their lights switched off and not to view the spectacular event from their balconies in case it distracted the Guinness World Record-breaking stunt.

Alain was triumphant despite complaining the building had rough edges and of windy weather.

He finished by waving a flag for Cayan Group which was promoting their new Dhs1billion project which will be situated next to other developments including Mohamed Bin Rashid City, Jumeirah Village Circle, Motor City, Dubai Hills and Arabian Ranches.
