Did you see this website (until now without content...):

http://towerdubaicreek.com/

Is this an official website?

I highly doubt this is an official one since there are many Google ad banners.
It's for the purpose of some real estate agent.

I really want to visit the site but its scorching hot ... I would need to park the car outside and walk all the distance of the circle to the center of the tower which is a deadly task in this weather.

That's good news!


just a question:
Does anybody know if this tower will get a concrete core, or will it be erected entirely of steel?
(I'm an engineer, so very curious...)

Are you the writer/editor of that site? I'm very intrigued by this bit of information:

"The developer is also building a pair of rocket shaped residential towers in the Dubai Creek Harbour scheme. They will be the tallest in the world according to the developer."

Is this referring to the ~500m "Lagoons twin towers" that we see in the older renders? In which case this ~1190m Creek Tower is the replacement for them.

Are they really planning a new pair of megatall residential twins here? I mean not just from inferring from the materplan renders, actual details on those individual towers?

There's plenty of wrong/subjective information in the article, so don't take this statement seriously.

The writer probably just mixed up some outdated renders or articles. The twin towers were planned in an older proposal of the Creek Harbour and have been replaced by The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour

I would think both, concrete with a structural steel encasement, and one hell of alot of rebar, possible post tensioning as well, the outer cable array is there mainly to thrust the tower downward on to the foundation, some of the thrust provided by the sheer weight of the cables, (which is why they are draped instead of pulled tight) the other function of the cables being stability,

however they build this "mast", i'll bet all the aforementioned methods or systems are used, in some way, and it will surely be massive and dense

It will take a huge effort to get this tower ready by Expo 2020, but then again this is Dubai.

The anchor blocks for the cables must be massive as well.
Pure dead weight to prevent them being pulled out of the ground...


I wonder if the cables are really "draped".
They could start moving in the wind. With certain eigen-frequencies, this could become tricky...
