Dubai, a city in UAE, is known for ultra modern architecture, lively nightlife and luxury shopping. Burj Khalifa, 830 m tall tower dominates the skyscraper filled the skyline. Now here is something more interesting about Dubai as it is all set to break its own record of coming up with one more monument taller than Burj Khalifa. Let us now peep into the details.
This project is now underway; it aims at building a super-tall tower that is expected to be 100 m higher than Burj Khalifa. The length of Burj Khalifa is 2700 ft. ( 828 metres). It will have a 360-degree observation deck which will showcase the captivating view of the city.
The man who designed World Trade Centre PATH station, Santiago Calatrava Valles is said to be the architect as he will be leading the design and engineer works. Aurecon will support Calatrava; the pair will work on the technical features of the project.
Aurecon is a building consultancy that was formed in 2009 following a merger between the Australian engineers Connell Wagner with South African practices Africon and Ninham Shand.
Adrian Jones, Aurecon’s project director, told, “The Calatrava team were looking to work directly with experts who have had hands-on project experience on other super-tall and similar mega-projects. He added, “The tower will test the craftsmanship of Aurecon as we play our part in making a mark on the built fabric of mankind.”
The top of the tower will consist of an oval shaped bud containing 10 observation deck, including a view platform is known as Pinnacle room offering 360-degree views of the city. The bud will also include a boutique hotel, vertical gardens and meeting rooms.
As told by Mohamed Alabbar, Emaar’s chairman, it will be located at the heart of Emaar Properties’ Dubai Creek Harbour development. It will be at least 928 metres high and comprise a central concrete column supported by a network of steel cable stays.
It would involve the colossal amount of $1 billion and will be unveiled during the expo 2020 trade fair, which will be hosted by Dubai. Doesn’t it seem incredible? Magnificent indeed.
