Ithra Dubai, the leading real estate developer wholly owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai, has announced the topping out of the structure of Tower A and Tower B at the One Za’abeel development, another major milestone for the group’s flagship project.
The momentous achievement, also marked by Tower A reaching its ultimate structural point and the completion of One Za’abeel’s structural phase, was celebrated during an exclusive ceremony attended by Issam Galadari, Director and CEO of Ithra Dubai and Raad Jarrah, its Chief Development Officer.
Ithra Dubai is anticipating the finalisation of the full cladding of all of Tower A, Tower B and The Link by the end of 2021, thus bringing exterior works on One Za’abeel to completion. Interior construction and fitting will then resume with greater focus, said Galadari.
At 300 m above ground level, Tower A will house 67 storeys of offices, multiple amenities, and the world’s first One & Only urban (vertical) resort. Next to it stands Tower B, rising 235 m above ground level and consisting of ultra-luxurious residential simplex and duplex units over 57 storeys. Both towers soar from a structure comprising seven basement levels, a ground floor and three podium levels.
According to Ithra Dubai, One Za’abeel will redefine the mixed-use offering in Dubai and the region owing to its innovative approach in architecture, engineering and design. Tower A and Tower B are consigned to residential, hospitality and commercial offerings, while The Link is dedicated to unique cultural, lifestyle and culinary experiences.
Late last year, it had accomplished a major milestone when it lifted the first section of The Link weighing 8,500 tonnes to its final position 100 m above the ground.
The final lift and successful completion of the epic panoramic sky concourse qualifies One Za’abeel to attempt breaking the Guinness World record for the Longest Cantilevered Building.
Upon completion, The Link will host several high-end attractions, including hospitality and entertainment venues, the ultimate in fine dining experiences with world-famous restaurants, an infinity pool, a luxury spa and an observation deck, said the developer.
