DMCC, the master developer of Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT), has signed New York-based architecture and design firm Rockwell group as the interior architect for one of the two super-tall towers at the 10-million-sq-ft Uptown Dubai.
The tower will feature luxury hotel rooms and suites, high-end restaurants, health spas, extensive conference facilities, grade A offices, and 237 uniquely designed branded residences. The super-tall tower’s name is set to be revealed later this year.
DMCC’s executive chairman Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said: “We are excited to work with Rockwell Group to create a breath-taking experience with global appeal, and what will become one of Uptown Dubai’s two iconic super-tall towers.”
“Their global experience in bringing futuristic concepts and innovative designs to life will lift Uptown Dubai’s energetic vibe and design to new heights. It’s an exciting time for design in Dubai,” he added.
Work on Uptown Dubai started in September of last year. The mixed-use destination’s main podium is set 28 meters above ground. Featuring two-level central plaza that will be larger than New York’s Times Square, the podium will be surrounded by world-class outlets, connected to a retail mall below, all with direct access to the iconic towers.
Furthermore, the development boasts a premium five-star hotel and branded residences, which will go on sale in early 2018. It also features more than 10 million sq ft of grade A commercial and residential space, over 200 retail and food and beverage (F&B) outlets, approximately 3,000 residences, a unique central entertainment plaza, and a number of luxury hotels.
