Tower will be part of the plan for phase III of the project
Dubai Maritime City has announced that phase three of the development will include a 229-metre-high tower, to be called The Landmark Tower. The tower will contain a five star business hotel, serviced apartments, a business centre, retail and leisure facilities. It will have three underground floors, 45 above ground floors and car park with a capacity of 927 cars.
“Yes, the tower is still in the plan as part of phase three,” Khamis J Buamim, Chairman, Drydocks World and Maritime World, said in an interview.
Dubai Maritime City ( DMC ) recently announced that 35% of developers have signed-off and agreed to begin immediate development of their plots.
Six mixed-use developments, announced in December 2011, are part of the first phase of the business district, Buamim revealed.
“Developments and work will be initiated within 90 days from signing the contract in the first phase of the city with expected completion of the projects in 36 months maximum.”
Asked if the master plan had been changed for DMC , Buamim said: “The whole city is going through re-engineering and re-designing. The master plan has changed, but three is no reduction to the size of the business district. More recreational and community areas have been established.”
