Dezeen video shows unseen footage of world’s longest cantilever

  • by

This Dezeen video takes viewers on a tour of One Za’abeel, a mixed-use development by Japanese studio Nikken Sekkei in Dubai that incorporates the world’s largest cantilever.

One Za’abeel opened in Dubai last week, with its record-breaking cantilever projecting out 67.5 metres from a bridge between two skyscrapers.

In the exclusive footage, the cantilever can be seen from various angles, projecting out from the skyscrapers 100 metres above ground.

The cantilever forms part of a wider suspended element called The Link, which measures 230 metres in length and is topped by a giant infinity pool.

Nikken Sekkei designed The Link as the centrepiece of One Za’abeel, as well as a habitable bridge between the buildings that is filled with bars and restaurants.

Across the rest of the development is a mix of offices, residences, hotels and retail venues, as well as an elevated “urban park” with gardens and a pool.
