World’s tallest twin towers set to be built in Dubai

A Dubai project which will include the world’s tallest twin towers has been unveiled by Emaar Properties and investment firm Dubai Holding.

Dubai Creek Harbour at The Lagoons, will be located within Mohammed bin Rashid City (MBR City), the project will be officially launched on November 1 in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, London and Moscow and will be the first residences located in Dubai Creek Harbour, offering views over the harbour and the city skyline.

Dubai Creek Residences will include six towers – two of which will be 40-storeys in height – with a variety of apartments.

The masterplan will contain a dedicated retail precinct, pedestrian walkways and The Dubai Twin Towers, a mixed-use development billed to be the tallest twin towers in the world.

At present, the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, at 452m and 88 floors hold the record for the tallest twin towers in the world.

Close to the Ras Al Khor Bird Sanctuary, which contains a mangrove ecosystem with migratory birds and flamingoes, the new urban area will have an integrated transportation system, environmentally sustainable ecosystems and green open parks.

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.”

The launch of Dubai Creek Residences will be held on a first-come first-served basis on November 1 in four locations: Emaar Pavilion on Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, in Dubai, in Abu Dhabi, in London at Four Seasons Hotel and in Moscow at the Ritz-Carlton.
