The highest skyscraper will be built in Dubai. Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, Mohammed ibn Rashid Al Maktoum, has laid the first stone of the future building.
The final name of the future skyscraper is still unknown. There are many assumptions, such as The Tower, Kingdom Tower, High Tower and others. Arabs plan to spend four years and one billion dollars to the building. The Spaniard Santiago Calatrava Valls will become an architect of this skyscraper. It is possible to see his masterpieces everywhere in the world. Two of the largest construction companies in UAE will realize the architect’s ideas.
It is planned that the building will be in the form of the spire. It will be fixed with the long ropes. This tower will consist of only 20 floors with the hotel and the restaurants. An observation deck with the spectacular view over Dubai will be located at the top of it.
This skyscraper will be a gift to the city, devoted to Dubai Expo World Exhibition, which will be held in 2020.
Nowadays, the highest building in the world is a skyscraper Burj Khalifa. It is situated in Dubai, too.
