Intriguing new photos have emerged courtesy of developer Emaar Properties showing an aerial shot of the tower’s vast footprint, along with workers deep underground finishing the foundations.
The project is currently engaged in a construction battle with The Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia. Both are vying for the title of the world’s tallest man-made structure. Dubai Creek Tower will top out at 3,045ft, while Saudi Arabia’s will be 237ft taller — meaning the tower in the UAE will need to complete first if it wants to hold the record (however briefly).
The mega tall (1,969ft plus) structures fall into separate architecture categories, however, meaning both projects will claim world records. Will the so-called “city of superlatives” strike again? Time and toil will tell.
