Dubai, the city is set to get a brand new tower on Sheikh Zayed Road that will have an artificial shore and a rainforest -like landscape development on top of the podium of the tower.


The job consists of two towers, 47 storeys high with a combined five-storey podium and two basement levels, which will place the facilities.

The towers will have 450 hotel rooms with sky pool, a sky lobby and 280 key serviced apartment tower sky pool with an artificial beach with a sky lobby, in addition to podium having a rainforest like landscape development, the consultant said.

“The architecture of the building will represent today, in a city where smart and chic structures have contributed greatly to the destination. The intention of creating an active frontage on Sheikh Zayed Road side is achieved by a common podium proportioning the towers over as a pedestal, as modernism dominates the design,” the company added.

Work has started on the tower and Contracting being the chief contractor.

Kieferle & Associate is the architect.

No details were available on the name of the developer and when the project is slated for completion.
