Property developer ETA Star has launched VERDE Towers, designed by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill.

The two towers have been designed to comply with the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) programme, to achieve a Gold rating.

The VERDE towers will make use of wind turbines, photovoltaic solar hot water, energy efficient lighting and a grey water system in order to achieve its sustainable goals.

Adrian Smith, whose previous work includes the Burj Dubai, said: "It's been a privilege to design these towers, as one truly believes it is a first step towards leaving behind a greener, healthier world. The energy saved by the project is equal to the planting approximately 600,000 trees or removing 680 cars off the road."

The towers are to be located in Dubai Maritime City.
