Dubai plans to open the world’s tallest horizontal hanging tower designed by the Japanese company Nikken Seiki, which resembles a giant “H” rising above the commercial area of Dubai within the “One Zabeel” project in early 2020.
The property development company, “Enriching Dubai” said that the tower consists of two adjacent skyscrapers, one of which is 300 meters in length and the other 235 meters, and was built on a platform, linked by a steel bridge of 228 meters in length and will form a horizontal tower in itself at a cost of one billion dollars.
The company pointed out that the tower, which was named “The Link”, will extend a section of it over 60 meters outside the boundaries of the two towers to the open sky, with a structure of 9,000 tons, at a height of about 100 meters above the surface of the earth.
A spokesman for the company, “Enriching Dubai”, said that the bridge will be fully lifted in its place later this year, as it is located on a busy highway consisting of 6 neighborhoods, noting that 4 of the 7 sections were installed in its specific location in the building.
The project includes a residential and commercial tower, a 5-star hotel, shopping malls, entertainment venues, and a “dagalieri” showroom, in addition to swimming pools, a spa, and prestigious restaurants.
