Dubai Towers Dubai was a four tower complex to be built in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The developer, Sama Dubai, intended this to form the centrepiece of The Lagoons, a megaproject located on Dubai Creek which was to consist of seven islands. The towers have between 57 to 94 stories[2] and although the heights are not known, it is believed the tallest would top 400 metres (1,310 ft) while two others would rise beyond 300 metres (980 ft).. Sama ECH was the Project Management company in charge of the project. Due to downturn in Dubai the project has been canceled.[3]

Design

Designed by TVS, these towers were 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.[4] They were to 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.[5]
