Dubai, UAE, April 12th 2021: Ithra Dubai, the leading real estate developer wholly owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai, announced today the topping out of the structure of Tower A and Tower B at the iconic One Za’abeel, another major milestone for the developer’s flagship development.

The momentous achievement, also marked by Tower A reaching its ultimate structural point and the completion of One Za’abeel’s structural phase, was celebrated during an exclusive ceremony attended by Mr. Issam Galadary, Director and CEO of Ithra Dubai and Mr. Raad Jarrah, its Chief Development Officer.

“One Za’abeel is a true reflection of Dubai’s spirit as it echoes the city’s message of unbridled ambition, innovative luxury and creative architecture. The iconic development today reached a pinnacle in construction with the top out of Towers A and B, bestowing a new wonder of architectural design, ultra-luxurious offerings, and innovative construction onto the world map. Much like Dubai, we look forward to celebrating further achievements with each milestone, until finalization of construction and beyond,” said Issam Galadari, Director and CEO of Ithra Dubai.

Ithra Dubai Announces Completion of Top Out of Tower A and B at One Za’abeel

Ithra Dubai is anticipating the finalization of the full cladding of all of Tower A, Tower B and The Link by the end of 2021, therefore bringing exterior works on One Za’abeel to completion. Interior construction and fitting will then resume with greater focus.

One Za’abeel will redefine the mixed-use offering in Dubai and the region owing to its innovative approach in architecture, engineering and design. Tower A and Tower B are consigned to residential, hospitality and commercial offerings, while The Link is dedicated to unique cultural, lifestyle and culinary experiences for the enjoyment of tourists and residents alike.

At 300 meters above ground level, Tower A will house 67 stories of offices, multiple amenities, and the world’s first One & Only urban (vertical) resort. Next to it stands Tower B, rising 235 meters above ground level and consisting of ultra-luxurious residential simplex and duplex units over 57 stories. Both towers soar from a structure comprising seven basement levels, a ground floor and three podium levels.

Late last year, Ithra Dubai accomplished one of the heaviest lifts in the region when it lifted the first section of The Link weighing 8,500 tons to its final position 100 meters above the ground. The final lift and successful completion of the epic panoramic sky concourse qualifies One Za’abeel to attempt breaking the Guinness World record for the Longest Cantilevered Building. Upon completion, The Link will host several high-end attractions, including hospitality and entertainment venues, the ultimate in fine dining experiences with world-famous restaurants, an infinity pool, a luxury spa and an observation deck.

The iconic One Za’abeel is an award-winning luxurious project, most recently recognized in November last year at the Innovation in Construction and FM Awards 2020, where it claimed the title for Best Innovative Project of the Year Award.

The lift of The Link was operated in two phases, the first of which took place in September when the first structure of The Link measuring 192 meters was lifted 100 meters above ground level. It was carried out over 12 days in one of the heaviest lifting operations in the region, weighing over 8,500 tons.

The final lift joined the cantilevered structure with the first section of The Link and was executed over the course of four days. More than 55 jacks and strand jacks, and 12.2 Km of strands were required to lift this final portion weighing over 900 tons.

One Za’abeel by Ithra Dubai is an ambitious enterprise that combines the best in design, architecture and civil engineering.

Currently, The Link is safely positioned over The Happiness Bridge in Dubai’s Financial District and is undergoing its final technical preparations for its epic ascent later this year.

The Link began to take shape in a series of slides to elongate the structure to its final position before its lift. In this final position, it weighs a total of 7,100 tonnes and is at its heaviest. Made from composite material of steel, it required a significant 500 tonnes of force to accomplish this last slide and was carried out by a team of experts in the field of construction, engineering and contracting.

While still under development, One Za’abeel has earned its reputation as an iconic structure within Dubai’s world-class skyline, with the construction itself garnering international attention. When complete, it will be recognised for its redefinition of the mixed-use offering in the region. Consisting of three building structures including The Link, it will house the finest residential spaces and the world’s first urban resort. The Sky Concourse will make the destination bucket list of any jet-setting traveller for its views, ambience, world-class restaurants, and panoramic photo opportunities.

Dubai, September 12, 2019 – Ithra Dubai, the leading developer of community-oriented real estate projects, fully owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai, announces the start of the first sliding phase of the World’s Longest Cantilevered Building or “The Link,” on its landmark One Za’abeel development. The commencement of the sliding works will take place on Thursday September 12, 2019.

One Za’abeel is an iconic, high-rise, mixed-use luxury development currently under construction in the heart of the city, standing at the gateway of old and new Dubai. Designed as a destination in its own right that will draw visitors from the emirate and beyond, the development has now reached a new milestone with the launch of the sliding phase of the World’s Longest Cantilevered Building structure.

Suspended over 100 meters above ground level and measuring 210 meters in length, The Link is a panoramic sky concourse that connects the two towers of One Za’abeel. The timeless structure will house a choice of attractions including Michelin starred restaurants, observation decks, and an infinity pool as well as an immersive experience that is now in its final design stages.

Ithra Dubai and its construction partners are building The Link in sections and will be carrying out a sliding operation to move it into place, spanning the Happiness Bridge and linking the two towers, before it is lifted into its final position 100 meters in the air. The sliding phase will officially launch on Thursday September12, 2019 in the presence of Mr. Issam Galadari, Chief Executive Officer and board member of Ithra Dubai, as well as members from the development and construction teams.

On the sliding of The Link, Mr. Galadari said, “We are excited to have reached this critical stage on One Za’abeel’s construction. The Link is an incredible feat of engineering that showcases Dubai’s ingenuity and commitment to creating groundbreaking developments.”

“As the World’s Longest Cantilevered Building, The Link will provide breathtaking 360 degree views of the city, in addition to the project’s prime location for residences, office space and leisure. The sliding phase of The Link is an incredible achievement that demonstrates Ithra Dubai’s talent and ability to overcome engineering challenges,” Galadari added.

Features of The Link’s Construction

Assembly of The Link’s main structure is an impressive engineering exploit. The bridge is constructed of seven steel modules – named Assembly A through G – that are being slid into place before they are lifted to their final position on the building. After connecting the first assembly to a temporary launching nose, The Link will then slide from Tower A towards Tower B.  Ithra Dubai has appointed a sliding and lifting specialist that will use heavy-duty strand jacks capable of generating a pulling force of up to 220 tons per jack to slide both Segment A and the launching nose thirty meters along the temporary platform to the edge of the podium. This will create space to assemble the next segment. At 1,742 metric tons and 51 meters in length, Assembly A is the heaviest individual node to be erected.

The primary nodes for each of the bridge’s assemblies were constructed off site and delivered fully fabricated to reduce on-site welding. Transporting these nodes entailed significant planning, coordination and execution to move the individual elements to the construction site, with the heaviest weighing in excess of 45 tons.

This latest stage in the building’s construction follows the assembly of a temporary launching nose on top of the retail podium level four in Tower A of One Za’abeel.
