Santiago Calatrava has designed a new Dubai high-rise for developer Emaar which will rival the Burj Khalifa.

HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, gave the green-light to the design by the Spanish architect.

He said the structure in Dubai Creek Harbour will be a “unique masterpiece” according to a tweet from the Dubai Media Office.

The media office added: “His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has visited a new exhibition in Burj Khalifa dedicated to showcase designs for a new tower by Emaar in Dubai Creek area.

“Emaar’s Tower incarnates the greatness of the Islamic architecture with new technology.

“Sheikh Mohammed has described the new tower as a unique masterpiece that will be equally great and glorious as Burj Khalifa, and as popular as the French Eiffel Tower.”

Emaar said the name and the height will only be announced when it is officially opened and no completion date or cost has been revealed.
