Dubai Holding and Emaar Properties just announced a new initiative to build the world’s tallest twin towers. Dubai Creek Harbour will be three times the size of the Downtown Dubai project, also developed by Emaar Properties, and will include retail, luxury hotels and around 39,000 residential units.
One of the towers will be residential, with 40 stories of living units that will include one, two and three-bedroom apartments, ranging from 900 to 2,150 square feet. The height of the towers is still not known, but the developers claim they will be taller than world’s current tallest twin towers-the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, which are 1,483 feet tall.
Besides the towers, the project will include the construction of six other structures. According to the CEO of Dubai Holding, the development will be pedestrian-friendly and will include healthcare centers and schools. The estimated construction costs of the towers, as well as the information regarding the commencement of the construction are still unknown.
