The Sanaya Limitless Tower Amman project consists of two very slender skyscrapers, each 223 m high. The buildings have a rectangular plan and are slightly inclined in their longitudinal direction. Longitudinal bracing is mainly provided by a sufficiently long concrete wall. To increase the transverse stiffness, the lift and staircase cores of both buildings are coupled together via four stiffening crosses made of prestressed concrete, each arranged in pairs.
Special Feature: Pool with Glass Floor at a Height of 100 Metres
Werner Sobek was responsible for the structural engineering of the project, which was planned by the architectural firm Jahn in Chicago. Due to the high load-bearing capacity of the ground, both high-rise buildings were founded on a common base plate. As a special feature, a pool with a glass floor is located on a connecting level between the buildings at a height of 100 metres.
