The building area is 7,048 sqm and overlooks the stretch of sea that separates Al Reem Island from AL Mariah Island, facing the Mall Gallery.

This is a strategic and clearly visible area and for this reason it requires a design that pays particular attention to the inclusion of the architectural object in the urban context.

Estimated costs: 100,000,000 euro
Assignment: Preliminary and final architectural design

The tower, 52 floors high, 280, with 300 residential units, of which 18 apartments of large size, 86 with two bedrooms, 148 with one bedroom and 48 studio type, for a total of 21,999 sqm GLA.

There are also 540 hotel apartment units, of which 4 are suites, 40 are one bedroom units and 496 are studio units, for a total of 32,429 sqm GLA.

The building is completed with podium areas, with the main entrance from the street, while on the opposite side there is a walk along the canal that faces the spaces dedicated to the commercial portions, for a total of 2,580 square metres. The residential units overlook the canal and the Al Mariah Island skyline, while the hotel apartment units overlook the street.

There are 3 floors for car parking, for a total of 374 parking spaces for residents and 143 for visitors.
The design is inspired by the idea of Energy: the tower is like a motor divided into two segments, which open towards the East and close to the West, separated by curved strips of light, designed as a car that emits energy and aims to be the new reference point of the horizon of Al Reem Island.

At the same time, the project is designed to reduce energy consumption, with particular attention to the principles of sustainability and environmental protection, through the use of advanced construction technologies, with strategies implemented from the outset, aimed at minimising the impact of the new housing on the environment, land use and city infrastructure.

The key factors considered during design are perfectly in line with the Estidama recommendations (sustainable design methodology in compliance with "green standards"):

  • orientation of the tower
  • high-performance building shell, with facade elements similar to large curtains that protect against the sun
  • creation of new eco-friendly outdoor spaces, with many green areas and planted with local tree species and with a low demand for watering, which promote natural ventilation towards the windowed walls
  • maximum use of daylight and minimisation of light pollution
  • minimisation of water consumption and waste management
