Hello Everybody.
First of all, thank you very much for regularly posting construction updates on this forum. I look at this page every few days and enjoy following the progress. I am barely in Dubai otherwise I would also provide you guys with a few pictures.

The reason I write here is, I have a question concerning payments and penalties. Maybe one of you has an answer.

As I have payment issues, I asked Tameer if I could pay everything at once in half a year. They rejected and talked about a 5000 Dirham fine for every delayed month. I am willing to take that fine as with the exchange rate of the euro and my current financial situation, this would make more sense for me. However, I wanted to aks if in return I can also demand fines from them through an attorney for the delay. Does anyone know the contractual framework and the law in the UAE? Sorry for posting this here, but I thought this might be a forum where others also have similar problems or solutions.

Thank you and i will continue to enjoy watching the Elite Residence grow

There will be enough machineries and equipments to be positioned on top, plus above 300 is way to high for a public roof pool.

Even if there was available space not needed for service equipment etc, I don't see additional public facilities as an option. Who would be willing to pay for such a non-profit installation? Would be nice though if anybody did...

Elite Residence Tower on track for 2011 completion

Construction of a 91-storey exclusive residential tower in Dubai Marina is making good progress and is on schedule to be completed by March 2011.

The Tameer Holiding Investment project, otherwise known as Elite Residence Tower worth a massive AED 1.7 billion, will stand at 380 metres and accommodate up to 1,500 residents in one of Dubai’s most sought-after districts.

Originally due for completion in 2009, the development is now successfully underway and scheduled to open to the public in March next year.

Master developer Emaar and main contractor Arabian Construction Company are reportedly making good progress on its construction, Cladtech International having already made a start on the cladding work.

In October 2009, KONE were appointed to supply a total of 12 elevators for the project using the company’s JumpLift technology to hoist up goods and supplies during the building’s construction.

[B]Tameer President Federico Tauber said: “Cladtech, a leading UAE based cladding contractor, has commenced work and is progressing at an excellent rate on the Elite Residence project.

"The Elite Residence will offer one of the most desirable addresses in Dubai Marina, the city's most sought-after residential district.

He added: “Once completed in 2011, the new landmark development at a height of 380 metres will become one of the world's tallest residential towers and will house around 1,500 residents."

Providing 695 residential units and covering a total built up area of 139,920.00m2, the high rise is set to feature more than a few characteristics of its neighbour The Princess Tower, currently one of the tallest residential towers in the world.

Located close to The Palm Jumeirah and The Mall of the Emirates, the tower will havepanoramic views over The Palm Jumeirah and Marina, and will be just a few minutes’ walk from industry free zones Dubai Media City, Dubai Internet City - with Jebel Ali a short drive away.

It will also offer excellent access to the new Dubai metro system, particularly the Dubai Metro Red Line and the future Al Sufouh tram line.

Uniquely designed, it will have four parking floors, two health clubs and a state of art business centre, alongside temperature controlled swimming pools, a gymnasium and a children’s day care nursery.

Elite Residences could be circa 230m now. And at level 60, the next oversized service floor has appeared: ready for the upper part of the shaft.

Also ER is progessing very well with 4 more floors and 5 levels in the core constructed in 1 month. The cladding looks very nice!

Tiger Steel awarded Elite Residence contract

Elizabeth Broomhall
July 13, 2010


View of the Palm Jumeirah from the 64th floor of the Elite Residence tower.

Developers of the Elite Residence project in Dubai have announced that Tiger Steel will be providing fabricated steel for the development.

The supplier, which will be awarded the contract officially by main contractor Arabian Construction Company later this week, has been chosen because of its proven track record and competitive edge.

It will be one of three steel suppliers to the project, alongside Cicon, which is providing reinforced steel (rebar), and Freyssinet, which is currently supplying steel for the post-tensioning.

The fabricated steel will be used for the roof feature at the very top of the 91-storey building, which will take the form of a crown in line with the ‘elite theme’.

Tameer’s development director Darren Ingram said: “The tendering is already done and we have made the decision to use Tiger Steel for the structural steel for Elite. The nomination is currently under process, and ACC will be announcing the contract officially later this week.

“Tiger Steel has already done work on the Elite project. We chose the company based on its proven track record here as well as its competitive edge.”

When finished, the Elite Residence project, which is already half constructed and progressing well towards its completion date, will provide 697 residential units overlooking the Palm Jumeirah, located close to Dubai Marina.

The Palm Jumeira views show best how this tower has grown during the last months:
core is at 69th level under framework / +250m,
regular floors at 55th and 56th level / +200m.

The change of the core above lv60 is remarkable, guess they need less elevators in the upper third.

Also the cladding pattern is different in the middle section above tech level 29. According to the renders, this reminds me of the Princess Tower shaft (columns with alternating two joined and one seperated floor).
