The tower has been desgined to eclipse the height of the Burj Khalifa by at least 300 feet (around 91 metres).

The new complex in Dubai, which will feature a 3,045-foot (623-metre) tower designed by Calatrava as its centerpiece has been a joint work of love for Emaar Properties and Dubai Holdings.

For its construction, the tower requires laying record-breaking 236-foot (71.9 metre) deep foundation piles capped with 1.59 million cubic feet (around 45,023 cubic metres) of concrete.

Inspired by the lily flower and mosque minarets, the tower will feature a 68-mile (109 km) array of supporting cables, a 360-degree observation deck and a Hanging Gardens of Babylon-style floor.

The tower broke ground last year, but the developer is yet to confirm a completion date.
