The world’s tallest twin towers will be constructed in Dubai, according to the developers behind a new development in the Emirate.
The six million square metre Dubai Creek Harbour scheme is the brainchild of Emaar Properties and Dubai Holdings.
The huge development on the Dubai waterfront will feature six residential towers and a pair of rocket-shaped buildings, which the developers say will be the world’s tallest twinned skyscrapers. The height has yet to be confirmed.
Although no architect has been named for the project, a masterplan design has been unveiled. This shows an area three times the size of Emaar’s previous Downtown Dubai development, which houses the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower.
A statement from Emaar said: “Planned on an open site, Dubai Creek Harbour will combine the city with the natural contours of the creek.
“With no legacy ties to infrastructure, this new Dubai will leapfrog many of the world’s other global cities. The masterplan is an order of magnitude larger than Downtown Dubai and will support its commercial and cultural development.”
The project will create 39,000 homes and 22 hotels.
A construction start date has not yet been set.
