2. Aladdin City
Inspired by the tales of Aladdin and Sinbad the Sailor, Aladdin City feels almost like a fantasy rising out of the waters of Dubai Creek. The project will be made up of three towers in the shape of shiny gold genie lamps with the highest tower at 34 storeys — all connected by a pedestrian bridge in the shape of dragons and snakes. Completion is expected in 2019.
