Gulf News - - Business - Staff Re­port

The main con­trac­tor for the first of two planned “su­per-tow­ers” on Shaikh Zayed Road has been an­nounced. Besix will han­dle the 78-storey project at “Up­town Dubai”, lo­cated near the Jumeirah Lake Tow­ers dis­trict, through its Dubai sub­sidiary.

Su­per-tow­ers are any build­ing that is over 300 me­tres tall.

The value of the con­tract has not been dis­closed, but given the pres­tige sta­tus, this has to be the big­gest one to start the year with.

The ar­chi­tect is Adrian Smith + Gor­don Gill Ar­chi­tec­ture.

“Award­ing Six Con­struct the con­tract to con­struct Up­town Tower is an im­por­tant step in bring­ing the muchan­tic­i­pated Up­town Dubai dis­trict to life,” said Ah­mad Bin Sulayem, Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man of DMCC, which is the master-de­vel­oper for JLT and Up­town Dubai. The new clus­ter has been con­ceived as a high-end mixed-use desti­na­tion and will also fea­ture ex­ten­sive re­tail op­tions as well.

In April 2018, DMCC part­nered with Ac­cor Ho­tels to bring their lux­ury life­style ho­tel and re­sorts brand, “SO/”, to the Mid­dle East for the first time. Last Au­gust, DMCC also an­nounced that the con­struc­tion of the dis­trict is pro­ceed­ing at full pace with the com­ple­tion of pil­ing and raft works for the Up­town Tower.

In April, DMCC part­nered with Ac­cor Ho­tels to base the “SO/” brand at the new clus­ter.
