First supertower to rise in Uptown Dubai District nears completion


DUBAI – Construction of Uptown Tower, the first supertower to rise in Uptown Dubai District, is underway, according to Dubai freezone authority DMCC.

The 340m-high Uptown Tower is currently standing at 260m, with 68 floors completed.

Significant progress has been made throughout 2021, with over 12 million man-hours completed in the construction of the first supertall tower in the Uptown Dubai District.

Façade work has reached level 45, with an overall total of 8,500 panels to be installed once completed.

Mechanical, electrical and plumbing works are in progress, while empower chilled water have been connected and DEWA transformers have been installed.

“As the already iconic Uptown Tower inches closer towards completion, its status as the first super-tall tower in the district will only be matched by its value as a destination for businesses and residents who will benefit from its premium commercial, residential and leisure facilities,” said Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DMCC.

Uptown Tower is set to be a LEED Gold certified building and will be home to a state-of-the-art DMCC Headquarters.

Designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, this architecture marvel replicates the brilliance of diamonds through its faceted glass façade that illuminates the interior spaces with natural light while filtering out harsh glare.

The 340m-tall Uptown Tower features 188 luxury hotel rooms and suites, exclusive restaurants, extensive conference facilities, Grade A offices and 229 branded residences.

It will sit at the heart of the Uptown Dubai District – which is a 24-hour neighbourhood with world-class dining, unique high-end retail outlets, a central entertainment plaza and some of the most renowned hotels and leading businesses from around the world. ICA/Expat Media
