Revealed: Foster + Partners plans 53-storey Dubai tower

  • Comment

Images have been released of Foster + Partners’ proposed 143,000m² office and shopping scheme, featuring a 53-storey skyscraper, in Dubai’s International Financial Centre district

The practice landed the project, which is backed by the Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD) and Brookfield Property Partners, following a competition run in late 2014.

It is understood the firm beat finalist Arney Fender Katsalidis to land the massive £700million development - officially known as ICD Brookfield Place - which started on site last week and is due to complete in 2018.

Topped by three storeys of ‘sky view suites’, the office tower and lower rise shopping centre will be linked by ’large, architecturally striking pedestrian pathways’. The designs include seven underground levels of car parking capable of housing 2,700 vehicles.

Grant Booker, senior executive partner at Fosters + Partners said: ’[The project] will become a new social focus for Dubai, combining world-class office space with a major civic plaza.

’Our aim is to enhance the urban character of the Dubai International Financial centre,  putting public spaces at the very heart of the design.

He added: ’The new office tower – on target to achieve a LEED Gold rating – is shaped to reflect the sunlight, and is surrounded by a rich mix

of easily accessible terraced spaces, that create a vibrant and lively extension to the [district].’
