Announced in October of last year, Dubai Creek Tower, is now among the UAE’s skyscraper giants, despite not having its exterior skeleton ready yet.

The company in charge of building the tower, Emaar, released new aerial photographs resembling the tower’s blue print. The pictures also show the workers finalizing the tower’s foundations.


Dubai Creek Tower is situated in Dubai’s Creek Harbor, which is spread over an area of 3.7 sq. km. This area allows the structure to surpass the height of Burj Khalifa.

The tower’s foundations stretch 71.9 meters below the ground, and use up about 45 thousand square meters of cement.

The tower is set to stand 928 meters tall upon its completion - 98 meters taller than Burj Khalifa.

The project, developed by Emaar Properties in partnership with Dubai Holding, is inspired by the shape of mosque minarets and tulip flowers.

The Swiss-Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava has also designed an observation deck situated at the top of the tower which will have the ability to rotate 360 degrees.

Another noteworthy feature of the tower is its interior design, which is inspired from Babylonian gardens, and the tower’s breathtaking views which overlook the nearby Ras Al Khor Wildlife Reserve.
