RMJM has been selected by Aurecon as the executive architect and interior designer for The Tower, a new structure at Dubai Creek Harbour being designed by architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava.
Calatrava selected global engineering consultants Aurecon as the engineer and architect-of-record to collaborate on design and technical features of the project.
Emaar Properties’ venture at Dubai Creek Harbour is situated parallel to Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary. Its chairman Mohamed Alabbar said: “The Tower in Dubai Creek Harbour will be a shining beacon of hope for the world, celebrating diversity and human achievements.
"The iconic landmark will further amplify the country’s ambition and futuristic vision.”
"The design is a perfect fit for our requirements and integrates not just design excellence, but also strong environmental and smart-tech considerations.
"With The Tower, we are delivering a compelling destination that will add long-term economic value to Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.”
The building’s design will comprise a net of steel cable stays, which attach to a central reinforced concrete column. The top of the tower will feature an oval-shaped bud, accomodating ten observation decks, including The Pinnacle Room, which will offer a complete view of the city and beyond.
The tower will also serve as a beacon of light at night, with a lighting system that will evoke the features of a flower bud.
