Will These Two Towers Be The Tallest in the World?: Figure 1

This week, Dubai announced plans to build a development that’s three times the size of the city’s Downtown development, home of the Burj Khalifa. The crown jewel of the new plan is a pair of towers that, once built, will apparently be the tallest twinned towers in the world, according to Dubai-based newspaper The National.

The development where the towers will be located, Dubai Creek Harbor, will include 39,000 residential units and 22 hotels and is scheduled to be built in phases. The developers are Emaar Properties and Dubai Holding.

“This is the greatest spot in the world and it deserves something creative and special,” Emaar chairman Mohamed Alabbar said at a press conference held on site, according to The National.

But just how tall these mammoth towers will be and when they will be built remains unclear, as the developers were quite vague when it came to details.

The National described the towers as “rocket launchers.” But they’ve already inspired more colorful descriptions.
