Dubai creek 220x150The supertall building’s striking design includes a distinctive net of steel cable stays that attach to a central reinforced concrete column that will reach into the skies. At the top of the tower is an oval-shaped bud that will house several observation decks, including The Pinnacle Room, which will offer unprecedented, 360-degree views of the city and beyond.
