More pieces of the linking corridor are being built between Dubai’s next two super-premium towers. The 192-meter first section of the link has been lifted which now connects the One Za’abeel towers at a height of 100 meters above the ground level.
The link structure is estimated to have an ultimate length of 226 meters and with the final elevation of 900 tonnes planned for October, the structure will achieve its estimated length. This will make the tower one of the top engineering miracles and also set to break the international record of the longest cantilever building in the world.
The Dubai government-owned Ithra Dubai took over 12 days and more than 110 jacks and heavy-duty strand jacks to make one of the heaviest lifts in the region weighing about 8,500 tonnes.
Issam Galadari, Director and CEO of Ithra Dubai stated that “Ithra Dubai’s One Za’abeel and its Link are modern marvels of engineering and design, a tribute to Dubai’s vision and the city’s greatness.”
With a breathtaking 360-degree view of Dubai, the multi-award-winning construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
The tower project includes premium office spaces, luxurious residential units, retail podiums, ultra-luxury hotel rooms and service rooms.
The One Za’abeel is aiming to get a Gold LEED certification with the UAE Vision 2021 and its sustainable goals.
