Al Fattan Marine set to breach 50-storey mark
Norr Consultants says V-shaped design will maximise ocean views for residents
Al Fattan Properties has received permission to build a 53-storey tower at Dubai Marina. Construction Week revealed in August that towers beyond the 30 and 40-storeys mark and up to 60-storeys were becoming a reality and would be announced soon.
Al Fattan Marine Towers is a freehold residential property at Dubai Marina, which is scheduled for completion in September 2005. The quarter-of-a-kilometre high residential tower with 229 apartments has been designed by Norr Consultants, which has given it a V-shaped design to maximise ocean views for the residents and a sky garden concept that would set it apart from the rest of the properties in the area.
“Al Fattan Properties has consistently met the changing needs of our customers by being progressive, creative and innovative,” said Major General Musabeh Rashid Al Fattan, chairman of Al Fattan. “Today, we continue to meet that challenge with Al Fattan Marine Towers, a distinct residential address that is unique both in terms of landscape and design elements. We have already witnessed considerable interest from the corporate sector for Al Fattan Marine Towers.”
The project features 47 floors of residential accommodation and contains a total of 229 apartments, of which 172 are three-bedroom units plus 53 two-bedroom units and three duplexes with 3 and 4 bedrooms and a spacious penthouse. The upper podium has been reserved for a health club and other recreational facilities. Al Fattan Properties has been in the property industry for the past 30 years and is involved with UAE projects such as the Oasis Beach Hotel and Al Fattan Plaza.
Al Fattan Marine Towers’ landscape incorporates a sky garden concept designed to simulate an external landscaped environment using natural materials such as stone, timber and bamboo. Specialist glazing has been used throughout the towers, which is controlled by a centralised building energy management system.
