participants, the tower is divided into multi-tenant floors, accommodating eight or nine
offices of average size, and single tenant floors for larger businesses.
The Tower is further divided into four zones – low rise, medium rise, high rise and
the tower summit, each of which can be easily and quickly accessed by separate lift
banks of four passenger lifts each. The tower summit is exclusively accessible from
the 48th-floor Sky Lobby, adding an additional level of security.
While creative thinking has led the design of the purpose-built tower, functionality for
businesses has been foremost at mind. Special attention has been given to the selection
of materials, finishing and colours to both enhance the exposure and functionality of the
building and to offer a unique business experience.
Each office unit is positioned to allow extensive views of the sea, the impressive
surrounding towers and/or the Jumeirah Islands development. North light enhanced
units are available and clearly marked. Directions are highlighted on floor plans to
allow for ease of planning for feng shui and vastu enthusiasts.
Each office can accommodate a maximum 2 tonnes safe with additional hot zones
designed to take the load of strong rooms of 2 square metres.
Allowing freedom and flexibility of individual office design, the units will be delivered as
a ‘core and shell’. Shared services are available on each floor, including washrooms,
pantries and service rooms. Specific floors are available with extra possibilities for wet
points catering to tenants wishing to build their own facilities within their office unit.
