Pile foundations complete at The Tower

Emaar Properties, the Dubai-based real estate developer, has announced that pile foundations for The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour have been completed.

Developed as a joint venture between Emaar Properties and Dubai Holding, The Tower is situated at the heart of Dubai Creek Harbour, a 6 square kilometre mixed-use development. Expected to be the tallest structure in Dubai, The Tower will house several observation decks that will offer 360 degree views of the city and beyond, the developer said.

Over the coming days and weeks, the first structural facets of The Tower will be visible, with several dedicated teams already onsite to accelerate the development work of the project.

The foundation work for the project has set a world-record, Emaar says, with the pile being tested to a load of more than 36,000 tonnes – the maximum carried by a single foundation pile to date. More than 145 barrette piles have been used to form the foundation for the tower, which has been designed by Santiago Calatrava Valls, the Spanish-Swiss architect.
