Construction work ends on one of the region’s largest office tower developments
High profile tenants have begun fit out work on 1.9 million square feet i-rise Tower, located in Dubai’s TECOM C district.
The iconic 36 storey executive tower, developed by Realty Capital Middle East, has been designed to maximise daylight in all office spaces and offer panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf and ‘New Dubai’ skyline. It is also located for easy access to Sheik Zayed Road and Dubai Metro.
“i-Rise reaffirms its position as a state-of-the-art office tower with an unrivalled combination of world-class business amenities, strategic location and a truly exclusive business address,” Marwan Mansour, CEO, Realty Capital, says.
“With the completion certificate in hand, we have now started handing over the offices to the owners, who are likewise very excited to move into one of the region’s largest and most luxurious office developments. We have sold a dream and have delivered our promise; we are pleased to have satisfied the expectations of our clients,” Mansour adds.
Each floor in i-Rise has 31,000 sq. ft. of office space, allocated into units of 500 sq. ft. to 3,500 sq. ft. Individual offices come in two modules, executive and corporate, with the former also including their own toilets, pantry and store rooms.
Other key features of i-Rise include a specially treated podium façade, 19 high-speed elevators, exquisitely designed grand lobbies and reception areas, CCTV security systems and 24-hour security surveillance, and a multi-storey car park with 2,300 parking bays. Other premium amenities include a business centre, a fitness centre and a landscape area.
Realty Capital obtained the final completion certificate at the end of May 2011, and has already announced intentions to attract “leading brands” to the tower’s retail floor, which features 28 units ranging from 500 sq. ft. to 10,000 sq. ft.
