I suppose this should be called E.F.Towers.

EFT Towers would stand for Emirates Financial Towers Towers....

"Mixed Use" by the way..

what does it stand for? can't read it

The render is not clear but it looks like.

consultants.pte.ltd
timothy seow studio

Sounds like Singapore to me

and there is a telephone number.....800-2255338

In my opinion, these are great looking towers, but then I like elliptical towers like Manazel.



A search of EFT on google came up with Electronic Funds Transfer. Quite appropriate I thought.

PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release

CPG'S NICHE STUDIO DESIGNS MIXED DEVELOPMENT IN PRESTIGIOUS DUBAI INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL CENTRE (DIFC)


Emirates Financial Towers, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC)
The proposed development on Dubai International Financial Centre
(DIFC Plot CP-06)
will be a mixed development with 61,300 sqm of Gross Floor Area, and over a million square feet of gross building area.

The massing of the project will consist of two towers linked by a tubular glass sky bridge. Both almost identical towers will sit on a four-storey podium and a four-storey basement. The podium will comply with the master plan for DIFC in that it will be physically attached to the neighboring plot as well as the retail mall. Below ground, the basements are intended to allow links to the central services, parking and services along the central spine of DIFC.

The elliptical plan profile will allow the shape of the towers to appear different depending on the angle at which the development is viewed from. The sky bridge will also be a distinct feature both from within and beyond the development.

The Towers and Sky Bridge
The two towers are elliptical in plan profile and identical in height. Both towers, each twenty seven-storeys high, will be commercial offices. Piercing the two towers at the 18th floor is the glass tubular sky bridge, which will house a commercial club.

The Podium
The podium and basement will contain the retail component and parking for the entire development. This parking will be able to accommodate four hundred cars.

Part of the podium abutting the retail spine is designed as terraces that will allow light, air and greenery into the retail elements. This will allow opportunities to enliven the retail experience with waterfalls, landscaped features, natural light and outdoor activities such as al fresco dining.



Conclusion
The sensuous and aerodynamic curves of the tower will complement yet distinguish itself from the hard edge buildings increasingly common in the competitive Dubai Skyline. The sculptural profile of the elliptical towers, the sky bridge, and the distinct angles of tower tops will allow the development to define its presence and identity while adding and complementing Dubai's already impressive skyline and cityscape.

CPG’S NICHE STUDIO DESIGNS MIXED DEVELOPMENT IN PRESTIGIOUS DUBAI INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL CENTRE (DIFC)
Press Release 11 April 2005



CPG Consultants and the Emirates Financial Towers L.L.C. have inked a contract for the Emirates Financial Towers, a mixed development project within the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). This project is being undertaken by Dr Timothy Seow, one of the best-known Singaporean architects who was conferred an honorary doctorate by the Oxford Brookes University in 1988 for his work internationally. Dr Seow joined the CPG family in September 2003 and now heads the CPG-timothy seow studio (CPG-tss), a division of CPG Consultants.

In addition to architectural design, CPG Consultants will also provide quantity surveying and interior design services for this development located within the “Wall Street” of Dubai. When completed in 2008, it will be an iconic structure that stands alongside other buildings designed by renowned architects.

This prestigious development will consist of two towers of identical height and elliptic in plan. A futuristic glass tube, suspended 85m above the ground between the twin towers, will house an exclusive commercial club which will overlook the panoramic view of the Dubai cityscape and the Gulf. With over a million square feet of exclusive commercial and retail space, this will be one of the few developments in Dubai with many lifestyle amenities.

“CPG have impressed us with their high quality design, professionalism, flexibility, responsiveness and, above all, commitment to address changing criteria within a context of short time frames,“ remarked Mr Mazhar ul Haq, CEO of Emirates Investment Group LLC.

"Dubai is one of the most buoyant construction markets in the Middle East, if not the world today,” says Mr Pang Toh Kang, president and CEO of CPG Corporation. “I am happy that Timothy's design will be showcased among the best in Dubai. Timothy’s strong brand name, excellent niche track record and vast design experience has added to CPG’s strengths to compete overseas.”

Indeed, the synergy between CPG and Dr Timothy Seow has been working well. The Emirates Financial Towers is but one of the many milestone projects undertaken by Dr Seow and his team since joining forces with CPG. Besides Dubai, CPG-tss has also made its mark in China, India, and Indonesia. Some notable projects include the Cikarang Golf and Retirement Condominium, a golf resort cum 202-unit mid-rise condominium development in Jakarta; Tiandu Aili Villa, a 226-unit villa mixed development in Hangzhou; Central Park, a 262-unit luxurious condominium development in Shanghai and four township and residential development projects in India.

“This past one and a half years with CPG has been one of the most productive periods of my career, especially with the symbiotic relationship we have. I leverage off CPG’s established reputation, track record, and extensive business network and logistics support to venture further overseas, while contributing my experience and track record to a reputable firm – a win-win situation for both CPG and myself,” said Dr Seow.
