Work will begin on what will become Dubai’s second tallest skyscraper in the third quarter of this year, according to Azizi Developments.
The building, a 570-metre tall, 122-storey residential and commercial tower on Sheikh Zayed Road, is being developed at a cost of AED 3 billion and will house residential apartments on the first 100 floors, as well as a luxury hotel on the remaining 22.
Azizi Developments is consulting with Atkins, an engineering, design and project management company best known locally for its help designing the Dubai Metro and the Burj Al Arab, to finalise the skyscraper’s design.
Atkins has refined and updated the original design based on feedback from Azizi Developments. The project is scheduled for completion between 2021 and 2022.
“We are delighted to announce that Azizi Developments has pushed the boundaries of innovation with the development of one of the tallest towers in Dubai,” said Azizi Group Chairman Mirwais Azizi. “The tower will be a stunning new addition to Sheikh Zayed Road - the main artery of the city - and will rival the world’s most well-known skyscrapers in terms of both scale and quality of design.”
Additionally, Azizi said the tower “will reinforce Dubai’s position as a global powerhouse for real estate, luxury and tourism as well as add to its appeal as the leading destination for some of the most iconic skyscrapers in the world.”
In addition to the tower, Azizi Developments is currently working on more than 200 other projects, including its Azizi Riviera, the developer’s flagship development in Meydan One, and Azizi Victoria, a mega-community project in Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District 7.For all the latest construction news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
