Adrian Smith, Partner, AS+GG said: “The UAE is charting unprecedented territory in terms of the creativity, originality, and pace of tall and supertall tower design and development. Dubai is really at the cutting edge in this space, with the eyes of the world firmly set on what the Emirate will come up with next.”
Gordon Gill, Partner, AS+GG said: “Excellence in tower design is about much more than achieving record heights. The ‘Burj2020’ is the direct result of a considered design process in which form follows performance. This means that core concepts such as the efficient use of space, integration of smart technology, community interaction and sustainability drive the design; thereby enabling the final structure to succeed in inspiring people and enabling communities to achieve more.”
Gautam Sashittal, Chief Executive Officer, DMCC, said: “DMCC has witnessed strong growth over the past few years, becoming a major international hub for trade and enterprise. There is a continued surge in demand for prime commercial real estate from new and current members, especially for office space with larger and efficient floor plates. The Burj2020 District, a premium development combining the latest thinking in urban planning and workplace environments, will add much needed space whilst also benefiting from the popular mixed-used community within the DMCC Free Zone.”
By offering a new, premium address for the global business community, the ‘Burj2020 District’ will provide the ideal location for leading businesses to benefit from the established marketplace that already exists in the DMCC Free Zone. Today the DMCC Free Zone consists of 66 towers including Almas Tower, already one of the region tallest commercial towers.
