RMJM has been appointed by Aurecon as the Executive Architect and Interior Designer for ‘The Tower’, a new structure at Dubai Creek Harbour that is being designed by world-renowned architect and engineer, Santiago Calatrava who is leading its design and engineering work. Calatrava has chosen global engineering consultants, Aurecon, as the engineer/architect-of-record to collaborate with on a range of design and technical features for the ambitious project.

The supertall building’s striking design includes a distinctive net of steel cable stays that attach to a central reinforced concrete column that will reach into the skies. At the top of the tower is an oval-shaped bud that will house ten observation decks, including The Pinnacle Room, which will offer unprecedented, 360-degree views of the city and beyond. It will also serve as a beacon of light at night, with a lighting system that will evoke the features of a flower bud, as it seemingly hovers atop the structure.

Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Properties, the Dubai-based company that commissioned the project, said The Tower encapsulates the positive spirit of Dubai. “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,” he said. 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.”
