The firm notes that significant progress was made on the project in recent months, with several key milestones being achieved since the start of the year.

According to a statement from BSBG, it was engaged midway through the concept stage as the executive architect and lead consultant for the project, working alongside concept architects Foster + Partners. Once the detailed design was complete, BSBG was novated to contractor Roberts Constructions, under a design & build contract to see the project through to completion, the firm said.
“The landscape design is now in progress, and from our side BSBG is in the process of compiling the documents for the Building Permit BP 8 submission to Dubai Municipality. Roberts Constructions achieved 10m safe man hours on 10th March 2021, which was a great achievement, and they are currently preparing to handover the basement level 2 car park, and all apartments in the residential tower over to the client for commencing their fit-out works,” stated BSBG associate Hameed Syed.
The project was designed by Foster + Partners and features two separate towers interlinked at various points by expansive open landscaped podiums, the hallmark of which are a series of ‘free-standing’ white concrete columns standing at 36m tall, stated the firm.
He added, “Externally, the façade is very close to completion, and many will have noticed that the concrete columns in the void of both the Residential and Hotel towers have been completed and the scaffoldings are now removed.”
