A new supertall tower is planned for Dubai, the modern desert city oasis in the middle east. The project is inspired by the mythical hanging gardens of Babylon. There will be trees and green space high in the sky. It will be the world’s tallest structure, breaking the record held by the nearby Burj Khalifa, which is also in the city of Dubai.
We don’t know exactly how high it will be, but the company chairman Mohamed Alabbar said it would be ‘a notch’ taller than the 2,717ft Burj Khalifa. Emaar Properties, the government-backed company, is the developer behind the project.
