Signature Towers (formerly known as Dancing Towers) was a proposal for a three-tower, mixed-use complex in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It was designed by Iraqi born architect Zaha Hadid after winning an international design competition which included proposals from OMA[3] and Reiser & Umemoto among others. The developers were Dubai Properties,[4] the company responsible for the earlier Jumeirah Beach Residence. Apart from these three towers, the project would also include a new building to house the Dubai Financial Market, a large podium containing retail space and a pedestrian bridge crossing the creek extension.[5]


The project was first unveiled to the public in June 2006[4] at a Zaha Hadid exhibition in the Guggenheim Museum in New York City.[6] At the time of the launch the name for the project was Dancing Towers; however, this has now been changed to Signature Tower & Dubai Financial Market Development.
