The Creek Tower
The masterminds of Dubai love to break world records. They take pride in creating the top wonders. Now, the city is planning to break the record of its own grand icon Burj Khalifa. The Creek Tower, which is proposed to be completed in 2020 will become the tallest building in the world crossing the height of Burj Khalifa. The design of Creek Tower was inspired by the flower Lily and Arabian minarets.
The tower will redefine the picture of the whole Creek once it is completed. While it bore the image of old Dubai with the less dazzling cityscape, links to heritage and absence of skyscrapers, Creek will go through a major transformation in 2020.
Get ready for several surprises in the Creek Tower including elevated garden, 360-degree views of Creek harbor and the entire city. This gravity-defying structure will demonstrate the great finesse of the renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.
