One week after the stunning announcement Dubai was to build a structure 'a notch taller than Burj Khalifa', developers Emaar have released a view video showcasing the incredible plan.
The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour is one of the most exciting announcements in years, and will be the centrepiece of an entirely new part of the city. Standing for ‘growth, progress and the possibilities of tomorrow’, the vast slender structure is a feat of engineering genius.
And the latest video highlights some of the more marvellous elements, including the rotating balconies, which literally spin out from inside the structure and rest protruding hundreds of feet up. They are part of a larger 360 viewing deck known at The Pinnacle Room.
While the video aren't labelled, it is fair to conclude that the VIP Observation Decks' attempts to ‘recreate the splendour of the Hanging Gardens Of Babylon’, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, will be nothing short of astonishing, hovering as they will towards the very top of the 828m+ building.
As for the rest of the development, Dubai Creek Harbour as a project will stretch around 6km - twice the size of Downtown Dubai - and will be a city unto itself.
The development include nine different districts, such as The Island District, Creekside 18, Harbour Views, The Canal District and The Sanctuary District. Situated adjacent to the Ras Al Khor Natural Wildlife Sanctuary, it will boast a world class yacht club, marina and harbour, 22 hotels, 6.79 million square metres of residential space and almost twice that in retail.
An elaborate network of waterfront, eco-resorts and landscaped gardens will frame the entire area, while it will be linked to the city via the Creek Bridge.
