Adding to its increasing number of eye-catching architectural initiatives, Dubai is planning to build the world’s tallest set of twin towers as part of a development entitled ‘Dubai Creek Harbour’. As reported by The National, the paired structures will form the centerpiece of a masterplan three times the size of downtown Dubai, the area home to the ‘Burj Khalifa’.
The vast scheme, a joint venture between EMAAR Properties and Dubai Holding, will be constructed adjacent to the ‘Ras Al Khor’ Wildlife Sanctuary, with a new visitor centre planned as part of the development. The area encompasses commercial districts linked by leisure developments that expand into the region’s residential neighborhoods. The project’s first phase will be a cluster of six towers complemented with retail outlets and three luxury hotels. In total, the venture is expected to accommodate 39,000 residential units.
