Proposals to construct the ‘tallest twin towers in the world’ as part of a 600hectare development in Dubai have been floated by developers Emaar Properties and Dubai Holding.
The rocket-shaped structures, which feature in computer-generated images for the huge Dubai Creek Harbour district, would need to be more than the 451.9m height of Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers to clinch the record
Emaar and Dubai Holding launched the marketing of a six-tower cluster of 40-storey luxury residential blocks at the weekend.
They said the waterside Dubai Creek Residences would form part of a master-planned city with state-of-the-art technology, a dedicated retail precinct, integrated transportation systems, and green open parks.
A statement added: ‘It will also feature The Dubai Twin Towers, an iconic mixed-use development billed to be the tallest twin towers in the world that will also define a new skyline for the city.’
The developers declined to give further details of the twin towers project, or the architects behind the Dubai Creek Residences.
