Nakheel Harbour & Tower

Designed by the developments wing of major investment company Nakheel, the 1km-high tower on a 270-hectare site, Nakheel Tower comprises four individual towers within a single structure, and a crescent-shaped podium encircling the base, complementing the structure's height. The scheme also features 250,000 sqm of hotels and hospitality space, 100,000 sqm of retail space and green spaces including canal walks, parks and landscaping. The site is in central Dubai at the intersection of Sheikh Zayed Road and the Arabian canal, and aims to complement surrounding developments, such as Jumeirah Park and Discovery Gardens.

Sustainability and safety are key to the development of the tower, with the latest standards and technology incorporated in its design. RED analysed existing design climate assumptions arguing that they should reflect the location and its much greater (80%) diversity in enthalpy.
