Work progresses on Emaar's new $1bn Dubai supertower

Quote:



Structural work is underway at Emaar Properties’ $1 billion (AED3.67bn) The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour, which when completed in 2020 will be 100 metres taller than Burj Khalifa.

Its project update video for July, shared with Arabian Business, show structural sheets have been laid in the foundations of the tower.

The pile foundation was, however, completed in May, with the piles tested to bear a load of over 36,000 tonnes – the maximum carried by a single foundation pile to date.

More than 145 barrette piles were used to form the foundation for the tower, which has been designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava Valls.

The Tower will comprise residential and leisure features including a 360 viewing deck “The Pinnacle Room”, and a VIP observation deck with landscaping meant to recreate the “splendour of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.”

It will also feature fully glazed rotating balconies that extend outward, rotating outside the skin of the tower and a boutique hotel for visitors.

Emaar Properties is developing the Dubai Creek Harbour master developer in joint venture with Dubai Holding.

Those photos clearly show how large this construction site is. I don't think I've ever seen so many cranes all on the same site. As for the construction speed, this elevator test tower that was recently built in Germany rose 3.6 meters per day, so I think a 3 meter speed per day is definitely realistic (even though this tower might be 5x as high as the elevator test tower, which is 244 meters high). On a similar note, is there any information on what elevators will be used in the Dubai Creek Harbour Tower and how many there will be?

Thanks for the nice vid! A good visualization showing how different the weather in Germany is compared to KSA / Middle East btw.

It actually says something more very exciting it translates roughly to:

Emaar is aiming to finish the construction of this tower before 2020 with construction methods and techniques never seen or used before! SO EXCITING

Wow! It would be nice to see something similar to 3d-printing
It's hard to believe, but Emaar knows how to surprise

Yes I also thought some parts of this masterpiece could be prefabricated. I'm overjoyed to hear about revolutionary techniques but if this tower is completed before 2020, no chance it to be taller than 1300m... So maybe a bit dissapointing although it is a dizzying height.

Only in Dubai ... disappointed with 1300m love it

Well the truth is Emaar with all their glory keep delaying the completion of their projects at least 2 years ... so I doubt this one will be operational before 2021 .. although I believe it might top out in 2020

I think years ago Emaar hired Elon Musk to come up with their completion dates.

That would be spectacular. And considering how close this thing is to the airport, everyone flying in and out with south side window views will be able to bask in its glory.

Forgive my pessimism, but piloting untested construction techniques tends not to improve one's odds of finishing by a set deadline, especially not on a project of this magnitude.

I wonder when we can come closer to the site of tower. The small first residential project should be completed by next year.

Emaar moves to tender region's largest ever building contract

The contract to build the world’s largest shopping mall in Dubai is expected to be worth about $5bn

They should connect both Dubai mall and this mall together by everything possible !

fantastic pedestrian bridges (great winter walk between malls), one can eat lunch at Dubai mall , burn it off on the way to the new mall and have a second lunch !

metro line,Shuttles ....etc

Well I can't reveal much but there is a project underway now to connect Downtown and Dubai Creek Harbour in a very cool and new method never seen before in Dubai and of course it will be the biggest worldwide
