Atkins to design major Dubai development

Al Habtoor Group has appointed Atkins to provide full multidisciplinary design services for three luxury residential towers and a retail area in the heart of Dubai, UAE.



The 395,000m˛ scheme is a key part of Al Habtoor City, a major new mixed-use development next to Sheikh Zayed Road, within one of the most high profile plots in the city.

Atkins will be delivering architectural, structural, MEP and ground engineering design for the project, comprising two 75-storey residential towers and a third 52-storey tower, which will together house up to 1,460 apartments and 11 penthouses with leisure facilities for residents. Each penthouse will include its own private sky garden and swimming pool, while the two taller blocks will feature a four-storey penthouse incorporating more than 3,000m˛ of living space.

Atkins’ principle design architect, Kourosh Salehi, said: “Our client’s aspiration was for classical elegance with efficient contemporary overtones. In order to achieve this, our design inspiration was sourced from early 20th century art deco architecture.

“The need for high quality landscaping and public realm has also been of particular interest to Al Habtoor. Great care has been taken to achieve a harmonious design which responds to the immediate context and environment, in order to encourage greater public participation within this special setting.”

The orientation and massing of the buildings seek to maximise sea and canal views, while reducing energy consumption by taking advantage of natural light.

The Al Habtoor City site is next to the planned Dubai Water Canal project, announced last month. “The launch of Dubai Water Canal has added a completely different aspect to the project, enabling Al Habtoor City to become one of the city’s go-to destinations where people can live, work and play,” said Shaun Killa, Atkins’ director of architecture.

Atkins is now undertaking detailed design for the project, with enabling works already under way. The project is due for completion in 2015.

And they got the main contractor already, which obviously is partially owned by the developer himsel, and is currently building the hotel complex next door.

The deco-style postmodernist design has the potential to be good, but only if the cladding is well made.

And it is a bit strange to see demolition in Dubai, considering all the empty plots that are common throughout the city. The replacement will certainly be more impressive, though!

I agree. Hopefully natural stone. That would look good.

One more point: This kind of cladding, looks much better in real life then in pictures


... BTW, the demolishing is almost complete now. Not much is left.

PS: Demolishing is quite common in Dubai, the availability of empty plots is completely irrelevant.

Still, it would be nice to fill all those plots. It would look much better. One day...

That will take many years. But nevertheless, good to see new projects going on.

My only regret is that to build those landing stage things they have to destroy a perfectly good softball field.

That's the Hotel complex in front of the site though ..... but demolishing of the old structure where the three towers will be build, is pretty much completed now
