Every time I see they CN Tower in real life the concrete is such an eye soar.
Agree, sadly so many architects seem to have a heavy concrete fetish...

Calatrava = gonna be fancy and super-expensive, no concrete.

Not the perfect render though, not only could you fry eggs on that plaza but more importantly, what use is the tower without an entrance?

my bet is the entrance is from a basement space under the plaza ... concerning the heat I think they should start investing in a new technology that cools down the air outside of course in a limited space and area.

I wasn't assuming we are going to see a concrete shell here, I just said it would be horrible if it actually happened. However, these kinds of towers (CN Tower, Oriental Pearl Tower, Berlin TV tower, ...) tend to be concrete shells. But as Droneriot said, Calatrava will most likely come up with better materials. Something like Seattle Space Needle would be nice IMO

Come on guys, Calatravas buildings are all pretty similar in terms of exterior materials. The tower will be white as the majority of his other buildings.

The skepticism is understandable. Some things don't get built. But look at the Creek extension in Safa area. If anything seemed like a pipe dream, that did. But in record time they lifted all 12 lanes of the busiest highway in the country and are getting an incredible amount of civil works done.

That ain't skepticism, this falls in the lines of utter pessimism ... I would 100% understand his statement if it was made on a project soon to be developed by any other developer but Emaar!

We are talking about EMAAR .. they won't go that big and pay that much money already for them to just dump it. This is happening .. I understand it might be very tight 4 years but they are always ambitious when it comes to completion in all their projects, it might take them a bit longer but who cares this beauty shall rise

Dubai's The Tower undergoes strength test: Wind tunnel, seismic evaluation

Published Today

Emaar Properties today announced the successful completion of advanced wind tunnel tests to confirm the structural strength and durability of the iconic new tower in Dubai Creek Harbour, which will define a brand-new skyline for the city.

A comprehensive array of never-before wind tunnel tests for The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour was commissioned, which will feature world-class observation decks, luxury accommodation and retail attractions. With wind being a major challenge in the development of high-rises, especially at very high altitudes, these tests are crucial in defining the final height and design aspects.

For the wind tunnel testing of The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour, up to 12 different analysis and testing methods were used to ensure that all possible cases are considered, guaranteeing the maximum quality and safety of the structure.

These tests are made for the entirety of the project with a full scaled model, and also on different sections of the project to double-check the behaviour of the building and the wind around it.

Since the structure is anchored to the ground with robust cables, some of these tests are innovative and were developed for the first time in this field. Two independent and leading agencies in the world undertake the wind tunnel testing.

Additionally, the rigorous wind climate study of the area covered measurements at different heights including data provided by the weather stations.

Different seismic studies were also considered and applied specifically to local ground conditions. To guarantee the maximum safety and stability of the building, the design of The Tower also includes multiple damper systems and shock absorption systems, located at different points and heights.

Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Properties, said: "An ambitious project on a never-before scale and design, The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour demands high-precision engineering across all its facets. As a significant value addition to Dubai Creek Harbour, the tower is billed to attract visitors from across the world, and will serve as a beacon of hope and positivity for the city and the region. Pushing the boundaries in high-rise engineering even further, The Tower’s wind tunnel tests are an industry-first of sorts, underlining our commitment to uphold the highest standards of safety.”

Santiago Calatrava Valls said: “From the materials selection to the technology used, every aspect of The Tower has been designed and developed according to the strictest international safety standards. The wind tunnel tests were an important component in the structural design stage, and we have deployed innovative engineering techniques to confirm the strength of the new icon.”

The successful completion of the wind tunnel tests as well as a comprehensive range of seismic and local climate studies lends further momentum to The Tower’s development to the highest standards of quality and safety.

This marks another milestone in the development of The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour, designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava, and located in the heart of the 6sqkm master-planned community set by Dubai Creek and only 10 minutes from the Dubai International Airport.

Well Downtown Dubai wouldn't be the same with a half finished Burj ...

My guess is that they know that without a proper crowd puller like this one that new area will not sell properly.

Exactly. The tower itself will not earn Emaar any money, but it is an inventment into the future, even at a fraction of Burj Dubai's cost. They will sell plots of land as well as their own developed units for up to two decades. This is a great business model.

I was hoping for a model of the whole DCH district. Actually I was hoping for a lot of things Cityscape didn't deliver.
