DOWNTOWN DUBAI - DUBAI, UAE
The RP heights Tower will be one of Dubai’s tallest buildings when completed, its height is
a major driver for its distinctive architectural form. This newly proposed residential tower
focuses on both cutting edge technology and sustainability. The tower is located within the
area of Downtown Dubai, opposite to the world’s largest Shopping Mall; The Dubai Mall
and in close proximity to the tallest tower in the world; Burj Khalifa.
By drawing inspiration from the twisting fluidity of natural lines that are found in sand dunes,
as well as to incorporate the flowing forms and organic punctuation in the landscape, the
tower’s design does not only attempt to achieve the perfect synergy between nature and
space but also to establish itself in the urban context of Dubai as one of its most distinctive
additions to the city’s existing skyline.

visitors of the development. The podium’s roof is
landscaped with lush greenery, luxurious swimming
pools, decks, community spaces and recreational
