Emaar Properites had denied reports by a section of the media that the company plans to construct another high-rise in Dubai that is taller than Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.
An Emaar spokesperson said: “In a television conversation with CNN during April this year, company chairman Mohamed Alabbar discussed tall towers and modern technologies that make it possible for Dubai to build another tall building.
“The current media reports use this April conversation as a source which does not spell a firm decision.
“Emaar, however, does not have any current plans to develop a building taller than Burj Khalifa in Dubai,” the spokesperson added.
In media reports that appeared on November 3, 2013, Alabbar was quoted as saying in an interview to CNN: “Emaar plans to build the tallest skyscraper in the world in Dubai.” More info
