Location: Dubai World Trade Centre Round About
Details: Three 36-storey towers

One Za'abeel is so named because it carries the address 1 Za'abeel, located strategically between the old and new business districts of Dubai on Sheikh Zayed Road.

One Za'abeel will consist of three separate towers that will be inter-connected at the top and will have a common podium at the base.

In a first for the region, a highway will run through the development.

One Za'abeel will also be in close proximity to two Metro stations.

The unique complex will include a residential tower with 450 apartments, a five-star hotel tower with 370 rooms and a commercial tower offering 500,000 sq ft of office space.

The commercial tower will be inter-connected at the top with 133 serviced apartments, and will also contain a swimming pool, meeting rooms, and numerous other facilities that will make it an ideal hub for the business community of Dubai.

A total retail area of 270,000 sq ft will be in the retail podium connecting the three towers at the ground level.

The development will also have over 2300 car parking spaces. Construction work on the project is due to begin shortly with completion scheduled for early 2011.

Announcing the project, His Excellency Mohammed Al Shaibani, Director-General of HH The Ruler's Court and Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Investment Corporation of Dubai, said:


'One Za'abeel is in line with the strategic vision of Investment Corporation of Dubai to identify and develop unique opportunities that will enhance Dubai's position as an international city of excellence.

Due to its central premium location at the end of the old business district and right at the beginning of the business growth corridor on Sheikh Zayed Road, One Za'abeel will become a symbol of Dubai's rich trading roots, as well as its rapid rise into a modern international financial and business hub.'



He further added: 'One Za'abeel is being developed as an environment-friendly project in line with the green buildings initiative launched by His Highness, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.'
I'll get a render up here soon :)

I'm unsure if it's on this boarded up plot, OR if it's going to sit on the Park Square plot.

Ah that's funny, I walked by the site a few months ago and thought like "hey, what a good location for a project" and wondered what they might build there... :)

But Early 2011 is way too optimistic... that's only 2,5 years from now on... I would say end of 2011 maybe (if they find some concret in the market) :lol:
