Emaar and Dubai Holding to build world's tallest twin towers in new Creek project
Dubai's newest mega development
On Monday, Emaar Properties and Dubai Holding revealed its plans for a new multi-million project called the Dubai Creek Harbour at The Lagoons, which will hold the world's tallest twin towers.
Located near the Ras Al Khor Bird Sanctuary, the Dubai Creek Harbour will be spread across six million square-metres and feature the Dubai Twin Towers – a mixed-use space billed to be the tallest twin towers in the world. The joint development will also include environmentally sustainable ecosystems, integrated transportation systems and open leisure parks, according to the developers.
The waterfront project will also feature a dedicated retail district, pedestrian walkways, cultural amenities, educational facilities, healthcare centres and much more.
His Excellency Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties, said: "The Dubai Creek is the cradle of our heritage and the lifeline that steered Dubai's growth. Dubai Creek Residences takes residents to the very source of Dubai's history and provides them a modern, luxurious, living environment. The project is a true tribute to the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to create a dynamic city of the future that integrates smart networks, while building on the cultural heritage of our city."
Along with the main project the two developers also unveiled Dubai Creek Residences, a new luxury residence that will form part of a six-tower cluster within the Island district of the masterplan. Located on the waters of the Dubai Creek, the 40-storey tower will have luxury apartments between 900 to 2,150 sq-ft.
The launch of Dubai Creek Residences will be held on November 1, 2014 in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, London and Moscow – each held on a first-come first-served basis.
