“Dubai Plans Construction of Tower Dubbed the ‘Burj Khalifa for Women'”

Mohammed Alabbar, the founder of Emaar and Noon, recently unveiled plans for a new tower in Dubai called the Dubai Creek Tower, often referred to as the “female” counterpart of the iconic Burj Khalifa.

During the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival (SEF) 2024, Alabbar announced that this tower would be integrated into a mall situated in Dubai Creek Harbour. He highlighted its uniqueness, as visitors would have the opportunity to drive electric cars through the mall, a pioneering concept.

In a session titled “Towering Success: What It Takes to Build a Business Empire,” Alabbar shared insights into the company’s decisions and challenges. He explained the rationale behind abandoning plans for a one-kilometer-tall tower, opting instead for projects like the Dubai Creek Tower, which offer similar investor appeal but with a different approach.

Alabbar emphasized the difficulties of managing a publicly listed company, stressing the importance of transparency and accountability in quarterly reports. Nevertheless, he expressed gratitude for the discipline it fostered and its contribution to personal growth.

The Dubai Creek Harbour project, covering six million square meters, aims to create a new urban hub in Dubai, with the Dubai Creek Tower as its centerpiece. Alabbar hinted at the imminent unveiling of the tower’s design, signaling another milestone in Dubai’s architectural journey.
