Burj Khalifa Builder Plans Taller Viewing Tower

Sunday, 10 April 2016 06:52 AM EDT

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The developer of the world's tallest building in Dubai says it plans to build an even taller tower in the Mideast commercial hub.

Emaar Properties Chairman Mohamed Alabbar said Sunday the new observation tower would be "a notch" taller than the Burj Khalifa. He wouldn't say by how much.

Unlike the Burj Khalifa, the new tower designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava Valls will not be a traditional skyscraper but more of a cable-supported spire containing observation decks, gardens and possibly other tourist facilities.

It is due to open by the time Dubai hosts the World Expo in 2020.
