Samsung said it won the construction project to build the highest building in the world for $880 million. The height of the building was not released during press conference since it is the policy to keep the exact height unveiled for the time being.

The company has an impeccable reputation and unrivalled expertise in constructing tall towers. Samsung Corporation's appointment is a defining moment and the Tower is set to rise and change the face of Dubai. The Tower represents the next stage of growth for Emaar and will be the basis for future developments and act as signpost for the ambitions of the region.”
