Arabian starts building twin towers in Dubai
CONSTRUCTION UAE
5 Oct 2007
Lebanon’s Arabian Construction Company has started work on a AED 873 million ($237 million) twin tower development on Dubai’s Shaikh Zayed road.

Located near the Burj Dubai development, the 30-month contract involves the construction of a 58-floor hotel tower which will cover a built-up area of about 66,000 square metres. The second tower is a 55-floor residential building covering a built-up area of about 62,000 square metres.

Both buildings will sit on top of a three-floor podium and a basement level with shops, restaurants and health clubs. The project also includes a six-level car park.

#UNDER C: UNKNOWN TOWERS, 61F+58F Hotel+Res (DBD)

could these two be them:

Dubai Mixed-Use Towers
Dubai, United Arab Emirates



Like the refracting sheets of light that rise from a desert mirage, shimmering veils of glass define two towers, blurring the border between land and water or the desert salt flats and the Gulf. The veil-like folded sheets of glass that cover the entire front faÁades create the sense of a patterned vernacular sunscreen and carve familiar shapes into the Dubai skyline on a monumental scale. Each tower bends and creases independently as it rises into the sky, creating both a sense of individuality and unity. This 1,500,000-square-foot high-rise development is divided into two distinctive, slender towers - one 53 stories and one 60 stories - situated on each side of a multi-story atrium lobby space. The Suites Tower houses hotel and luxury service apartments, while the Residential Tower houses rental apartments.

These can be near Al Hekma Tower. That's the only area of SZR that is in a total mess (Metro, Defence Roundabout, Double decker road) and we can't see what's really going on.

It would be great if those two will be the towers though ... and yes we have seen them floating around for at least a couple of years.

There are enough "straighten up" towers already, we need variety.

One of the possible sites: The boarded up huge plot, behind the Abyaar Billboard and to the left of Al Hekma site (bottom left of the pic).

ZETAS FOUNDATIONS has started work on the big site next to Al Hekma Tower.

We are not sure if these towers will be build there, but ACC has worked with ZETAS before on Rose Rotana, Al Yaqoub, Princess and Elite Residence Towers so it might show that this site is indeed the correct one.

I hope, these towers would be such a compliment to the other towers. As well as a nice blend if dancing towers and dubai towers (the ones in the lagoons) get built.
