“They say the sky is the limit for ambition. We say the sky is only the beginning.”
When you set limits for yourself or for anything you want to do in life, that’s the bar. Like, you never think beyond that. But if you believe that anything is possible, what can you achieve when you think that way? It’s a beautiful quote to live by. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid envisioned this iconic building, based on the question, “What can they have in this country?”
And we’re talking about 1999, the ’90s. What can they have that’s iconic? When you think about the Sydney Opera House or any of these types of monuments. When visiting that city, you should explore the widely known places. And that’s where the vision of this came up. And they are a country when they talk about the history and where they were and what they’ve become.
It’s all about vision, believing in that vision, and working hard every day to bring it to life. And this is a testament to that. So it’s a very strong reminder of the power of vision and belief in what you’re trying to do. That is what this tower, this hotel, and this landmark represent.
