Duja Tower, 52 Storey

Duja Tower will be a proud new addition to the increasingly dramatic Dubai skyline.

Prominently located along the prestigious Shiekh Zayed Road in the heart of the Dubai business district, Duja Tower will be a proud new addition to the increasingly dramatic built skyline.

Optimally located opposite Emirates Towers and the Dubai’s convention centre, the 52-storey tower will be a mixed-use tower of retail, high-quality office space and apartments totaling 128,000m2 of floor area. Comprised of retail on the ground floor, offices on the mezzanine to the 7th floor levels and residential from the 13th to the 42nd floor levels, the tower will be capped by executive offices starting on the 48th floor.

The amenity floor, which features a prestigious health club, is located on half of the 49th floor and will enjoy spectacular views across the Dubai landscape. At the rear of the site, parking is provided in a separate 12 storey above grade structure providing spaces for approximately 700 vehicles. Duja, meaning “just before dawn”, will be covered by a translucent black fritted, ceramic faced glass to create dramatic day and night reversal effects. The overall form of the tower body is created by two interlocking octagon-shaped floor plates linked by a central elevator core. Extending some 191 metres high, the tower is marked at the quarter points along the vertical elevation by luxurious sky lobbies, which provide cascading points of interest leading to a glazed dome at it’s top, symbolizing the clear dawn skies of its desert setting.
