Construction starts on Palm Jumeirah Dubai residential tower

The ground-breaking ceremony at a new residential tower in Dubai, One at Palm Jumeirah, took place today (Wednesday).

 Mahdi Amjad, CEO of the Omniyat Group and Khaldoun Al Tabari, CEO of Drake & Scull International performed the ceremony at the development which is located at the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah and scheduled to be completed in 2017.

 Amjad said: “We are absolutely thrilled to break ground today on what will be, in the near future, one of the finest residential developments anywhere in the world.

 “Throughout the next three years, the Omniyat Group and DSI will work jointly to build this magnificent building to a standard, well beyond anything seen in high-end development.

 “The 25 storey tower, comprising 90 spacious apartments will be the most prestigious address in Dubai. Our swimming pools, indoor and outdoor, cinema, cigar lounge, super luxury spa and yacht club will be the most lavish of its kind. It is my intention to do something really special for our amazing city.”
