Dubai Creek Tower: A Step Towards the Future

Emaar’s Dubai Creek Tower is nothing less than perfect. The tower is designed by the extremely creative Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. His design is a mixture of Arab minarets and the lily flower, in addition to Calatrava’s own vision that became this wonder.

The innovation in design is not the only triumph of the tower. So far the tallest building known is Burj Khalifa Tower but compared to Dubai Creek Tower, the latter is about 100 meters taller.
