DUBAI | Al Habtoor City Towers | +300m x 2 | +984ft x 2 | 74 fl x 2 | 52 fl | U/C

Al Habtoor to Add Apartment Towers to Central Dubai Development

Al Habtoor Group LLC, the closely held owner of hotels in Dubai, plans to add three towers to its development on the city’s main Sheikh Zayed Road that will include penthouses the company values at $245 million.
The Al Habtoor City development will include 1,460 apartments and three hotels with more than 1,600 hotel rooms, the company said in statement distributed at the development site today.
Hotel occupancy in Dubai has been among the highest in the world this year at 78 percent, Philip Wooller, Middle East and Africa director at STR Global said on Sept. 29. Residential prices increased 21.7 percent in the second quarter, the fastest pace in the world, a survey by Knight Frank LLP showed.
The additional towers boost the value of the Al Habtoor City project to 11 billion dirhams ($3 billion,) the company said. A total of 11 penthouses will be built. The two biggest will have four floors and won’t be sold for less than 900 million dirhams, Chairman Khalaf al Habtoor said today at the site.
The development on one million square feet will include a French-style garden and an air conditioned tennis court. Al Habtoor will finance the development with its own resources, Khalaf al Habtoor said. “If some banks want to give us competitive rates, we would welcome that,” he said.
Construction is likely to be completed by early 2016, the Chairman said.
Al Habtoor’s joint venture with Leighton Holdings Ltd., Australia’s largest construction company, is building the hotels in the Dubai project. The venture will be given priority for the contract to build the residential part, but only if the price is competitive, Khalaf al Habtoor said.

Wow whatīs this then.

In first render you canīt see any other towers however in another render you can actually see the BK close by. Canīt imagine those renders being accurate.

Good news today for Dubai, with also the Entisar tower being presented.

News about this project got just released. I wouldn't be surprised if the renders weren't final but we do know those towers will be 74 floors tall. So given the top luxury character of the units those will be definitely supertalls.

and a one and a two and a three

i just assumed the hotel and residential part is split onto all towers, if not and the smallest is pure residential i will change it later. really nice project and Dubai is so back that it might get really hard for Shenzhen to play catch-up with number of supertalls.

These are already being prepped. The existing buildings onsite are being demolished to make way for this development.

The hotel complex is already under construction and above ground now. Are the three residential towers, making room for, that demolishing of some existing buildings is starting.

Stunning project the Architecture is really nice. Perfect mix between Dubai style and the west. and the location is even better when they finnaly finish the canal. this will be one of the first big Development u run in to when u head in this way. and its right by the Fantastic JW Marriott Marquis twin towers also.

But on the other side tho i kinda Doubt the speed of the construction considering its the same company, As did most of the funding on the Dubai pearl along with Leighton group wich has been really slow.

"as said in the article above" Al Habtoor will finance the development with its own resources, Khalaf al Habtoor said

and its really cool that the Sheik sayed Road skyline is slowly creeping towards Dubai Marina

and this architecture will fit the nearby Churchill residency quite well too

Not yet started (actual work). The first thing to be done is the 850 meters long, 2 x 6-7 lanes elevated bridge for the SZR. That's the main challenge, the digging and shoring of the canal itself, isn't.

Demolishing of the existing buildings where the three residential towers will be, has already started, while the hotel complex is progressing well, with one of the cores is already 3 - 4 levels above ground
