Local developer Emaar Properties has selected Hill International to take over as the programme manager on its Dubai Creek Harbour development.

The US-based firm will replace the UK’s Faithful +Gould, which was appointed as programme manager for the development in early 2016.

Located in the Ras al-Khor area of Dubai, the Dubai Creek Harbour development will be home to the world’s tallest building, known as The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour, other residential towers, and a large retail centre that could be the world’s largest.

Emaar has appointed contractors to provide pre-construction services for the tall tower, and is close to appointing contractors for infrastructure works at the site. It has also appointed contractors for the construction of various residential towers.
