HH Sheikh Mohammed Visits Dubai Creek Tower Project

About a month ago, we shared images of the Dubai Creek Tower as it undergoes construction in the Dubai Creek Harbour, one of Emaar’s latest projects. Pretty soon, it will be the tallest structure in the world, and everyone is really excited to see this upcoming iconic tower!

Recently, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, visited the Dubai Creek Tower to check on its progress. He was accompanied by high-ranking officials and representatives from Emaar.

Ruler of Dubai Reviews Progress of Iconic Tower

Notably, HH Sheikh Mohammed’s visit coincided with a huge milestones in the project’s development. More than 50 percent of the “pile cap” has been completed since the placement of concrete began last September. The pile cap should be completed by the middle of this year.

Meanwhile, here are the project’s highlights so far, plus some interesting trivia:

  • October 2016 marked the ground-breaking of the Dubai Creek tower.
  • More than 450 skilled professionals are working on the gigantic structure.
  • It was designed by Santiago Calatrava Valls, a Spanish/Swiss architect and engineer.
  • About 12,000 tonnes of steel has been placed — double the weight of the Eiffel Tower!
  • Around 60,000 tonnes of concrete has been poured — half the weight of Canada’s CN Tower.
  • The tower will showcase observation areas including VIP Observation Garden Decks and the much-awaited “Pinnacle Room.”

Moreover, the Dubai Creek Tower will lie at the heart of the Dubai Creek Harbour — an upcoming commercial, residential, and entertainment community. It is situated near the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, where visitors can see more than 67 species of water birds.

The majestic Dubai Creek Tower will be completed in 2020 — just a couple of years from now! Until then, we can only wait with much wonder and anticipation! In the meantime, we can always view a mega-replica of the tower while shopping at The Dubai Mall.
