On Tuesday, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, broke ground on what’s set to become the tallest building in the world – The Tower.
Dubai Media Office and Emaar have published videos and photos of HH Sheikh Mohammed at the construction site alongside other officials and members of the Royal Family.
Towards the top of the structure, visitors will find a 360 degree viewing deck, known as The Pinnacle Room, while the VIP Observation Decks will 'recreate the splendour of the Hanging Gardens Of Babylon', one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. CLICK HERE TO SEE ALL THE PICTURES OF THE TOWER
What’s more, balconies that extend outwards will rotate around the tower, and the structural core and tension cables will be gently and dynamically illuminated. As a result, The Tower will be visible for miles around.
The pictures below, taken last April, show the location of The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour.
