Architecture and engineering consultancy SSH was selected by Emaar and appointed by WSP to carry out full architecture services on Grande Tower in Dubai’s Opera District.
Grande luxury residential tower will be located in the radiant centre of culture and arts in Downtown Dubai, neighbouring the Dubai Opera and standing opposite Burj Park and lake.
The project comprises a promenade level below a 78-storey tower accommodating retail, amenities and 866 spacious luxury apartments, including a mix of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units with large penthouses situated below the crown.
Michael Byron, Resident Director – UAE, at SSH, said: “The tower will be a significant addition to the Downtown Dubai skyline and will become a contributing and symbolic landmark in the development of the Opera District. SSH is extremely honoured to once again be working alongside Emaar in delivering a project that will exemplify a luxurious setting for contemporary living and offer premium experiences for residents and guests alike.”
Pedestrians strolling along the Fountain Lake will have direct access to retail units that will line the podium’s base at promenade level.
The podium’s upper level is to include a swimming pool and expansive deck orientated, along with the tower itself, to benefit from spectacular Dubai Fountain views. A large expanse of amenity space will allow for facilities within the tower, while the basement will provide ample residential and visitor parking.
