Damac Properties has confirmed the completion of the raft foundation work for tower B at Aykon City, its multi-tower master development.
The setting of the major foundation saw over 200,000 cubic feet of concrete poured within a 24-hour period, the same amount required to fill 75 swimming pools, the developer said in a statement.
Aykon City is located on Sheikh Zayed Road, and the 4 million square feet multi-tower development will overlook Dubai’s most prestigious neighbourhoods.
“This foundation slab sets the stage for accelerating development at this iconic project, and we look forward to seeing the tower rise up to complement the existing skyline,” said Niall McLoughlin, senior vice president of Corporate Communications & Marketing.
“Aykon City is one of Damac’s flagship master developments in Dubai, and aims to offer residents and visitors quality experiences, with an abundance of services and amenities to suit all ages and lifestyles,”
Aykon City offers views of the Dubai Canal, and will be home to Aykon Plaza, an entertainment and lifestyle hub for the community that includes swimming pools, spa, beach club, cafes, restaurants, yoga and tai-chi areas, as well as a residents-only private recreation space called The Club.
