Dubai Towers Dubai is a four tower complex to be built in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The developer, Sama Dubai, intends this to form the centrepiece of The Lagoons, a megaproject located on Dubai Creek which will consist of seven islands. The towers have between 57 to 94 stories[3] and although the heights are not known, it is believed the tallest will top 400 metres (1,310 ft) while two others will rise beyond 300 metres (980 ft)[4]. Sama ECH was the Project Management company in charge of the project. Due to downturn in Dubai the project has been put on hold.[5]

Design

Designed by TVS, these towers are intended to create a dramatic new landmark for Dubai. Their design represents the movement of candlelight and according to Thompson, Ventulett, Stainback & Associates, this is supposed to symbolise hope, harmony, growth and opportunity.[6] They will contain offices, apartments, hotel rooms, retail, entertainment, gymnasiums, health spas and a variety of other services.

Construction status

The Dubai Towers Dubai, like the rest of The Lagoons, is currently on hold.[7]
