Emaar Properties will attempt to deliver the new Dubai Creek tower and a linked “mega-retail district” in time for Expo 2020.

The architect behind the new US$1 billion tower says it will represent a nation like The Eiffel Tower, while Emaar chairman Mohamed Alabbar said it would probably “be a notch taller” than Burj Khalifa – currently the world’s tallest tower but due to be surpassed by the proposed 1km-high Kingdom Tower in Jeddah in 2018.

The Dubai Creek tower will mainly serve as an architectural tower than a working building, but there will be between 18 and 20 upper floors used for a hotel with restaurants, function rooms, an interior garden space and an observation deck.
