Dubai Towers Dubai was a four tower complex to be built in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The developer, Sama Dubai, intended this to form the centrepiece of The Lagoons, a megaproject located on Dubai Creek which was to consist of seven islands. The towers have between 57 to 94 stories[2] and although the heights are not known, it is believed the tallest would top 400 metres (1,310 ft) while two others would rise beyond 300 metres (980 ft).[citation needed]. Sama ECH was the Project Management company in charge of the project. Due to downturn in Dubai the project has been canceled.[3]

Design[edit]

Designed by TVS, these towers were intended to create a dramatic new landmark for Dubai. Their design represents the movement of candlelight and according to Thompson, Ventulett, Stainback & Associates, this is supposed to symbolise hope, harmony, growth and opportunity.[4] They were to contain offices, apartments, hi rooms, retail, entertainment, gymnasiums, health spas and a variety of other services.

Construction status[edit]

The Dubai Towers Dubai, like the rest of The Lagoons, is currently on hold.[5]
