The plot use and urban planning is final .. towers height is of course just representative for the sake of the study.

I think Dubai Creek Tower sounds better than The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbor.

Slightly off-topic: Do we already know where the extended metro line will run through this area? And how many stations will there be? Where will they be located?

Thanks in advance!

Well, a masterplan of DCH was published a while ago in which you can see a metro line with its respective stations going through the area.
Those plans could change any time though

It's a pity all metro lines in Dubai are designed this unnatural way.

orgasmic is an understatement lol ... and that's how you do it ... Leave it to Emaar to build tallest towers ... they do it with such a grace and elegance it is just a joy to watch

Not to be off topic but THIS is what kingdom "city" should look at this stage. Roads, buildings and infrastructure all being built simultaneous. This is very impressive of EMAAR. Everything neat and tidy, looks like a construction site in a developed country

Well we don't know that Emaar tend to release their construction update a bit late .. I expect this video isn't very recent and that is because the weather is very clear ... I think it was made in the beginning of this month since weather was horribly dusty in the past 2 weeks while it looks pretty clear in their released video

The Tower will be rising soon, retail district piling commenced 2 weeks ago, The island district is a construction jungle, such an amazing sight.

I think I may have the unpopular opinion regarding this, but oh well.

I like what Emaar is doing keeping a lot of the designs in a similar style. What they have shown so far looks amazing, despite many designs being preliminary. Any design that is different (ex. The Address towers, and the main tower ofc) sticks out far more. So long as the cladding and overall execution looks great, this district will be one of the best looking in the city.

I think it is a great time to remember DubaiM post about this project and its resemblance to downtown .. The island itself would be fully completed alongside the tower and it looks like they are starting on the retail part of the masterplan but this time it is all upsized and supersized to fill Dubai's ambitions we live in a truly remarkable astonishing era ... thank you Dubai

For me it's a clear sign that the Dubai Creek Harbour project is not another pipe dream, but really happening - just like Downtown Dubai! We should all appreciate the exciting times which lie ahead! Dubai has never seen such a big project before and has never built a new tallest tower since the Burj Khalifa, but now the time has finally come

Here are two pictures to show what I mean:

Downtown Dubai in 2005:



Dubai Creek Harbour 2017:



As you can see, both districts were at the exact same construction stage with residential towers well u/c, a sales centre and the landmark tower's finished foundation
So maybe, Dubai Creek Harbour in 2018 is going to look close to Downtown in 2007 in terms of construction progress? That would be absolutely awesome What do you guys think about this?

Downtown 2007:
