The Dubai Creek Tower, set to surpass the height of the Burj Khalifa, is undergoing a redesign
Dubai Creek Tower, one of Dubai's renowned record-breaking structures, is presently undergoing a redesign, as reported by Emirates News Agency (WAM). Situated in Dubai Creek Harbour, near Ras Al Khor National Wildlife Sanctuary, the tower was initially envisioned as an architectural marvel featuring a 360-degree viewing deck inspired by the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, along with a café, a central plaza with shops, a museum, and an indoor auditorium. Originally planned to stand at a minimum height of 1,300 meters, surpassing the Burj Khalifa, it remains uncertain whether this height will be retained in the new design. While the exact reasons behind the project's redesign are unclear, Emaar anticipates unveiling the updated concept no later than April 2024. Santiago Calatrava, the Spanish-Swiss architect who also designed the UAE Pavilion at Expo 2020, was the creative mind behind Dubai Creek Tower. The tower's groundbreaking ceremony, initially scheduled for completion by 2021, was officiated by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in October 2016.
