Dubai, UAE, 27 December 2022: Ithra Dubai, the leading real estate developer and asset manager wholly owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai, announced today that the final construction work at their iconic One Za’abeel development is in progress, in preparation for the grand opening scheduled for 2023.
The development is taking shape in Dubai’s skyline after the achievement of a new milestone in Q3 2022, the completion of the full glass cladding of its 3 towers: One Za’abeel The Residences, One Za’abeel Tower, and The Link. Work on the multi-award-winning One Za’abeel development is now focused on the interior fit-out and will be available for residents and visitors later in 2023, as per phased handover schedule.
An architectural and engineering marvel, One Za’abeel is redefining the concept of mixed-use developments in Dubai, and the region. The development’s towers and panoramic sky concourse, The Link, offer the finest in retail, residential, office space, and hospitality. The Link is posed to break the Guinness World record for the “Longest Cantilevered Building”, offering an elevated lifestyle destination and several high-end attractions, including a 360° observation deck providing mesmerising views of the city.
Commenting on the work progress of One Za’abeel, Raad Al Jarrah, Chief Development Officer at Ithra Dubai, said: “We’re developing and creating an iconic mixed-used development that will contribute to Dubai’s landscape. From concept to design and implementation, a lot of thought has been put in to guarantee the residential, business, hospitality, and leisure components at One Za’abeel are fully integrated for an unparalleled, luxurious experience. Visitors of One Za’abeel will be driving straight into a premier urban oasis.”
The iconic mixed-use development is sure to be an indulgent haven for tourists and residents alike, providing high-end retail experiences throughout The Gallery on its podium levels, and featuring the world’s first luxurious urban vertical resort. Managed by One&Only, the resort includes 94 One&Only Private Homes, and 229 luxurious hotel rooms and suites. One Za’abeel’s hospitality offering also includes SIRO Hotel, which will manage 132 guest rooms and a state-of-the-art wellness & recovery fitness club.
One Za’abeel received the “Iconic Project of the Year” award at the Big Project Middle East Awards 2022 held earlier this month. Celebrating excellence in construction in the region, the award acknowledges the complexity, scale, and unprecedented mixed-use offerings of One Za’abeel, alongside its significant contribution to Dubai’s architectural landscape. One Za’abeel consecutively received Best Innovative Project of the Year at Innovation in Construction & FM Awards in 2019 and 2020, and Mixed-Use Project of the Year Award at the 2019 Big Project Middle East Awards.
An all-encompassing project, One Za’abeel houses an unparalleled residential offering, with 264 opulent simplexes and duplexes which were offered for sale earlier this year. Its strategic location close to Dubai’s commercial business district also makes One Za’abeel a prestigious business address, with 26,000 square metres of premium grade-A office space available, attracting international corporations to settle in one of the most sought-after business destinations.
Current progress of work at One Za’abeel is focused on the interior fit-out in compliance with Gold LEED certification requirements in preparation for the phased handover and grand opening scheduled in 2023.
