Dubai’s Al Habtoor Group has recently revealed plans to launch the world’s largest residential tower, the Habtoor Tower. Located in Al Habtoor City on the banks of the Dubai Water Canal, it offers a stunning view of the iconic Burj Khalifa in the Business Bay area and is conveniently located near the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
This ultra-luxurious living facility is part of a multi-billion Dirham development and boasts 81 floors, 1,701 keys, and a built-up area of 3,517,313 sq ft. The Habtoor Tower is expected to be completed within 36 months.
Khalaf Al Habtoor, the Founding Chairman of Al Habtoor Group, expressed his excitement about the project, stating “As a former builder and contractor, I am thrilled to reveal some of the novel technical details of the construction techniques used in the Habtoor Tower. I’m also proud that it will be delivered at the highest quality in record time.” He continued saying that “This tower is unique in every aspect and can be considered a learning curve for all contractors in the region. We have challenged engineers and architects to deliver what we do best in Dubai and the UAE; an architectural masterpiece.”
Innovative construction techniques and high-quality concrete and steel will be used during development, making it one of the quickest builds in the city. Additionally, pre-painted metal decking for parking and commercial areas will save construction time, and innovative techniques have led to a reduction in Co₂ emissions, less than 50% of traditional buildings’ carbon emissions.
The Habtoor Tower is currently being evaluated by environmental experts with the aim of achieving LEED Platinum Certification, the highest authority in green building rating systems worldwide.
Al Habtoor concludes by saying, “In these uncertain times, I believe that the Habtoor Tower will stand as a testament to the resilience and determination of the people of Dubai and the UAE. This new project is a source of pride for myself and the region, and it will be a unique and sustainable landmark for generations to come.”
