Pent has started and reached ground level, action at DH, and this is rising, looking good.

Didn't really think it would happen.

well, that's the question...
with 62fl and such a huge roof feature, why not?

(but it doesn't really look supertall in the renders IMO)

I always wondered whether this tower is a supertall or not but it seems like it is not. The render has 62 floors and I am assuming a floor height of 3 metres so we have only 186 metres plus the spire structure which seems to be about the height of ~12 floors which means 36 additional metres. The total height should be around 222 metres only. But the model looks higher.

220m for a 62 floor tower with a roof feature? That would be extremely low for Dubai standards. I'm sure that the floor height will be more than 3m. This being a commercial tower anything less than 3.7 would be surprising. Ubora is what - 4.3m/floor? Plus there is the lobby and probably some mechanical floors.

Al Futtaim wins lift contracts worth $22 million

Sarah Blackman
July 29, 2010



Al Futtaim Engineering has won three contracts worth US $22.59 million (AED83 million) to supply Hitachi and LM lifts to real estate projects in the UAE.

The company will install 79 elevators and 12 escalators in the Nation Towers and the Investment Council Headquarters in Abu Dhabi and Al Hikma Tower project in Dubai.

“We are delighted to be partners in some of the biggest and prestigious real estate projects in the country. The three projects further endorse Al Futtaim Engineering’s core competencies as one of leading vertical transportation solution provider in the UAE,” said Al Futtaim Engineering managing director Dawood Ozair.


The 64-floor Nation Towers project will be supplied with 45 Hitachi elevator units and eight escalators. This mixed-use project includes a 350-room 5-star hotel, serviced apartments, loft apartments, office space and retail areas.

The project, which was awarded by Arabtec and National Projects & Construction (NPC), is expected to be completed by the end of next year.

Meanwhile, Al Futtaim Carillion awarded the Investment Council HQ contract to the engineering company in April. The work, which includes installing 22 Hitachi elevators and four escalators, is set to be finished by mid 2011.

And, by October next year, the company will supply 12 high-speed elevators to the 61-storey Al Hikma Tower. The contract, which was awarded by China State Construction, was won in April this year.

The contract awards are the latest in a string of successes since Al Futtaim's Elevator Division was established in 1973, anticipating the trend for high-rise construction in the UAE. “We are at the high end of the market, involved with complex and demanding projects. Mostly elevators are custom-made for particular projects. We assist from the design and traffic-analysis stage, determining how many elevators are needed, and what capacity and speeds,” explains Elevators Division GM Syed Shamsul Haq.

The tower suppose to have an automated car park. Any news about that? Is it under construction already? Who is the supplyer? Germans or Americans?
