Build work on world’s fifth tallest tower in Dubai to begin this year
Being developed at a cost of $816m (AED3bn) on Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road, the 570-metre tall, 122-storey residential and commercial tower will house residential apartments on the first 100 floors, and a luxury hotel on the remaining 22.
In an update, the Dubai-based developer said that it is currently consulting with Atkins to finalise the design based on its feedback.
“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.”
The project is scheduled for completion between 2021 and 2022, though Azizi is aiming to deliver the tower on a fast-track basis, somewhere between 39 and 44 months.
