DUBAI | 1 Park Avenue | 350m | 1148ft | 90 fl | Pro





17.07.08 - ALEC awarded DIFC contract

The design and construct contract for a mixed use development in the Dubai International Finance Centre has been awarded to ALEC by our partner Al Jaber on the 17th of July.

#1 Park Avenue is a 400m+ mixed use high rise development comprising commercial, residential and a 5+ Star hotel with retail/F&B throughout. The operator of the 5 Star hotel is yet to be announced and will be located in the upper portion of the building. The lower podium areas will contain numerous retail and F&B outlets which will be accessible via bridge connections from the surrounding area.

Bulk earth works will begin in November 2008 and structure is planned to start by January 2010. Total site area is 18,381m2 and project GFA is approximately 285,000m2. Project completion is being targeted for mid 2013.

The local Alec has been selected for the AED1.8bn ($490m) contract to build a 99-storey tower at Dubai International Financial Centre, the highest yet of a series of newtowers planned for the area.

The mixed-use tower will include offices, apartments, a hotel and retail space.

The final height has not been decided, but it is expected to be between 380 and 405 metres tall when completed, making it the tallest building at DIFC and one of the tallest in Dubai.


A 405-metre-tall tower would be the eighth tallest completed building in the world, although several other, far taller projects are under way, including the Burj Dubai.

The architect for the new tower is UK-based Broadway Malayan. The development manager is the local Roya International. The client is the local Al-Rihab.

Another 400-metre tower is planned for the DIFC area by the Dubai International Financial Centre Authority.

The Lighthouse tower has been designed as a low-carbon-emissions building.

Its energy consumption will be cut by up to 65 per cent and water consumption by up to 40 per cent using passive solar architecture such as awnings, low-energy and water use techniques, and recovery strategies for the energy and water used (MEED 27:4:08).

The UK's Atkins is the consultant and US-based Hill International is the project manager.

Construction work is already well advanced on another super high-rise project at DIFC.

The local/Australian Nasa Multiplex is working on the AED1bn construction contract for the 328-metre Index Tower. The local Union Properties is the developer.

I think it will fit in the skyline great. This tower is a little less "crazy" if you know what I mean. And Dubai also needs tower such as this one, not only the unique ones. And I think this design is nice.

I agree. The tower looks good, but that platform is horrible.

Blocky and slick building, not something that Dubai builds often! It's an OK design but the helipad needs to go!
