The Marina Torch, also known as Dubai Torch or just The Torch, is a supertall residential skyscraper at the Dubai Marina, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The Tower became the tallest residential building in the World in 2011, surpassing Q1, in Gold Coast, Australia. The tower reaches 336.1 m (1105 ft) in height with 79 floors above ground.
In April 2007, the project was running 18 months behind schedule, with the tower's foundations still under construction. The original expected completion date of June 2008 had been extended to late 2009, with the further extension into 2011. The Marina Torch was opened in May 2011.
