Nakheel has announced plans for the Nakheel Tower, which will be the world's tallest skyscraper, if built, standing over two thirds of a mile high. The tower will take over a 10 years to complete and will be the center of a vast development complex, the Nakheel Harbour and Tower. In early 2009 the tower was suspended due to the effects of the worldwide credit crunch.
On July 6th 2011, Dubai World’s Board of Directors announced that Nakheel's legal ownership will be transfered to the Government of Dubai upon completion of the company's financial restructuring. Total costs is around 2.5 billion dollars.
