The building’s design includes a net of steel stay-cables, attached to a central reinforced concrete column.

An oval-shaped bud is featured at the top of the tower, and will house numerous observation decks.

Last month, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, reviewed Dubai Creek Tower.

The tower, located within the 6km2 Dubai Creek Harbour development, had reached new milestones, it was revealed at the time.

The core of the project’s pile cap has now reached its highest point, and it is more than 50% complete, with completion scheduled for mid-2018.

 

HH Sheikh Mohammed marked the tower’s ground-breaking commencement in October 2016.
