Nakheel Tower


Nakheel Tower


Structure in General

unbuilt [cancelled]
pile foundation


residential commercial office hotel


  • This is the centrepiece of the Nakheel Harbour & Tower scheme, the design of which has been influenced by the bridges of Isfahan in Tehran, the Alhambra in Granada, Alexandria harbour in Egypt and the promenade of Tangier in Morocco.
  • The building will be the world's tallest structure.
  • The building's weight will be supported by almost 400 foundation barrettes, which could support forty, 50-storey buildings.
  • The building comprises four individual cores with gaps in between allowing strong winds to pass through.
  • The observation deck will be reached by lifts in less than four minutes.
  • The high-speed lifts will let people view the sunset twice, from the bottom and then again at the top.
  • The four core towers will be linked by four-floor, full diameter sky bridges at around every 25 storeys. The sky bridges tie the core towers together structurally.
  • The building will have more than 200 storeys.
  • So tall is the tower, that it has five different micro-climates; the temperature difference between the top and bottom could vary by as much as 10 degrees celsius.
