The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) has revealed a 138,000m2 master plan for a new business park which will include office and hotel towers, designed by Singapore based, RSP Architects and Jones Lang La Salle, which will be located in the free zone on Sheikh Zayed Road.

There will be a 34-storey office tower and a 28-storey business hotel, both to be served by a common podium, which will feature a ballroom, conference centre and retail gallery. The office space in the complex will be a mixture of freehold and leasehold properties to suit the needs of small and large businesses. Eleven low-rise buildings will also be built around the towers.

RSP Architects has completed the concept design for the development, and Jones Lang LaSalle, is conducting the market and financial assessment of the business hotel, as well as identifying and negotiating operating agreements with preferred hotel operators.

Ahmed bin Sulayem, executive chairman, DMCC, said: "As we look to bring this project to fruition, we are especially pleased to partner with leading names in the global real estate business."
