Originally announced in 2016 by Dubai real estate master developer Emaar Properties, Dubai Creek Tower is currently undergoing a redesign phase, and the work will start in the next year. It is thought to be taller than the Burj Khalifa. The project is being redesigned by a leading international company, which has emerged as a winner in a design competition among several top players according to Emaar Properties’ Founder Mohammad Al Abbar.
He said; “We are seeking during the next 7 to 8 months to develop a new idea about the project, and we hope to start construction within a year from now”
Which Influenced the Design of the Dubai Creek Tower?
As previously reported by TradeArabia, the design of the Dubai Creek Tower draws inspiration from the graceful lily flower and evokes the image of a minaret. Its elongated oval-shaped bud will feature some of the world’s highest observation decks. It promised to re-shaped the architectural boundaries and transform Dubai’s skyline forever.
Notable Achievements of Dubai Creek Tower
Upon completion, the Dubai Creek Tower, boasting a minimum height of 4,300 ft, is poised to establish several significant records. Notable among these world-first achievements are:
The iconic Dubai Creek Tower structure will boast a record-breaking 110 km of cables, the most extensive use of cables in any single structure, weighing a staggering 18,000 tonnes. These cables would stretch a distance from Dubai to Abu Dhabi when aligned horizontally, according to experts.
The tower has already earned a global record for its foundation, recently completed with over 145 barrette piles, reaching depths of over 60 meters. The combined length of these piles exceeds 9 km, while the pile cap incorporates over 45,000 cubic meters of concrete, equivalent to the volume of 6,700 truckloads.
The tower’s bud, standing as tall as an 80-story building, is being constructed with 12,000 tonnes of steel, while the ‘stem’ will require 240,000 cubic meters of concrete, equivalent to 40,000 truckloads.
When it comes to connectivity, Dubai Creek Tower is conveniently located. It is situated just 10 minutes from Dubai International Airport, and a few minutes away from the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary,
When Will Dubai Creek Tower be Completed?
Initially, Dubai Creek Tower was expected to be completed by 2021, but the progress was impeded. It is hoped to be restarted in the next year. As it is being redesigned now, construction will start next year, according to Mohamed Alabbar. It is going to be a remarkable addition to Dubai real estate.
