Dubai, Oct 8 (DPA) A tower named after the former seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher, is to be built on a wharf in Abu Dhabi’s central business district of al-Reem Island, business officials have said.”The tower’s ecological impact will be limited. Advanced methods will be employed to preserve energy consumption and reduce the level of thermal emissions to zero,” chief executive officer of Deyaar Development, Markus Giebel, told reporters on Tuesday.

Neither the height of the tower, nor the date of its completion, were given.

The Michael Schumacher World Champion Tower, designed by LAVA Architects, is the first of seven such towers planned around the world, each representing the Formula One World Championships won by the German driver.
