Rising to a height of 1.3 kilometres, Dubai Creek Tower is set to become the tallest man-made structure in history. FROM its early days as a small fishing village at the start of the 20th Century, Dubai has transformed into a truly global city.
From the vast Palm Jumeirah formed on land reclaimed from the Arabian Gulf, to the 7-star Burj Al-Arab hotel and the mega-tall Burj Khalifa – the emirate is now synonymous with some of the world’s most impressive construction projects.
But the ambition, scale and extremity of the city’s latest scheme, will quite literally take engineering and construction to new heights. Dubai Creek Harbour is a vast residential, retail and entertainment development that is set to rival the existing Downtown Dubai district.
Designed by Santiago Calatrava to stand at the centre of this new destination, Dubai Creek Tower will rise to over 1.3 kilometres in height and become the tallest structure constructed by mankind to date.
