Leaning towers

First Leaning Tower of Pisa (3.97 degrees) then Puerta de Europa (15 degrees) and now Capital Gate (18 degrees).

Capital Gate

When complete, Capital Gate located in Abu Dhabi will be 160 metres and 35 storeys tall and leaning 18 degrees. It look like a bit more than 30 meter overhang. Will it become Guinness Book of Records' most inclined tower? “ADNEC, the developers, and RMJM, the project’s architects, have submitted a joint application to the Guinness Book of Records to recognise the tower as the 'most inclined in the world'”
