Dubai Towers Dubai was a four tower complex on hold 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 and 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] and the fourth tower will rise at 230 m (750 ft). Sama ECH was the Project Management company in charge of the project. Due to downturn in Dubai, the project was cancelled.[3] As the Complex were not built, The Tower was proposed, It will surpass Burj Khalifa upon its completion. Its construction began in 2016, estimated to be completed in 2020.

Design[edit]

Designed by tvsdesign, 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]

Construction status[edit]

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