Irish singer Ronan Keating shot his music video Iris on the helipad. In March 2004, professional golfer Tiger Woods hit several golf balls from the helipad into the Persian Gulf, while in February 2005, professional tennis players Roger Federer and Andre Agassi played an unranked game on the helipad, which was temporarily converted into a grass tennis court, at a height of 212 meters. The helipad has no borders or fences on the edges and if a player hit a winner the tennis balls would plunge down to the ground.

The top of the Pemex Tower features high power dishes which are located beneath a heliport. Since the ground level heliport by the building was complete the one on the top of the tower is rarely used, because the wind currents that are generated in the structure are very strong.

7. Torre Picasso, Madrid, Spain
