Dubai developer Emaar Properties and investment firm Dubai Holding on Monday unveiled plans for a multi-million project known as Dubai Creek Harbour at The Lagoons, which will contain the world’s tallest twin towers.
Located within the two partners’ joint master development, 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 Dubai skyline.
‘Dubai Creek Harbour at The Lagoons’ will be developed on an open site and is expected to be larger than Downtown Dubai in terms of magnitude.
The two apartment buildings being constructed first are set to cost around AED3 billion ($817 million).
Dubai Creek Residences will include six towers – two of which will be 40-storeys in height - with a variety of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments that will have unit area ranging between 880 – 2,154 square feet.
The masterplan will contain a dedicated retail precinct, pedestrian walkways and The Dubai Twin Towers, an iconic 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.
The Emirates Park Towers, otherwise known as the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai Hotel, come in second at 395m and 77 floors, while third in the current rankings are Jumeirah Emirates Towers, at 354m and up to 56 floors.
