The Capital Gate is one of the most recognizable buildings in the Abu Dhabi skyline, and it owes much of this recognition to its striking lean. In June 2010, Guinness World Records certified Capital Gate as the “World’s furthest leaning man-made tower.” The tower is 35 storeys tall and boasts an 18° lean. The famous Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy has a lean of only 3.97°.
