Architect RTKL has released this artist's impression of its design for the Capital Towers hotel in Dubai. The 35-storey structure, for Capital Investments, has been billed as the most sophisticated design in the city, owing to its distinctive blue glass skin.

A structural engineer has not yet been appointed, but consultant Yolles is engineering the facade.

The construction costs and contractor for the five-star hotel, which has 160 rooms and 60 serviced apartments, are yet to be divulged.
