Three years from now, we will be looking up at the tallest tower in the world, right here in Dubai. Dubbed as “a monument to the world and an icon of the 21st century,” Emaar Properties’ Dubai Creek Tower will definitely be an incredible sight to behold.
The tower will be completed in 2020, but we can catch a glimpse of it even now! At the Grand Atrium of The Dubai Mall, there is a mega-replica of the Dubai Creek Tower — visited recently by the Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Situated a few minutes away from Dubai International Airport, the Dubai Creek Tower is part of a major project, which includes residences, restaurants, shopping and entertainment centers, plus observation decks where you can have 360-degree views of the Dubai Creek Harbour.
Here are some interesting facts about the Dubai Creek Tower:
- Every day, after the sun sets, the tower will emit a “beacon of light” from its summit.
- Its design is inspired by the lily flower and traditional minarets, with modern architectural lines.
- It was envisioned by Santiago Calatrava, a Spanish-Swiss architect whose winning design was chosen among other renowned architects.
