At the heart of this huge mixed-use scheme will be a dramatic protruding steel skybridge called The Link. Suspended 100m above the ground, the 228-metre long panoramic space will house restaurants and bars, an observation deck, a gym, a spa, a pool, a banquet hall and a rooftop terrace.
One Za’abeel is located on land either side of Al Saada Street.
Suspended perpendicularly across the two towers at a height of around 100 meters and weighing 13,000 tonnes, The Link will host entertainment venues, dining with celebrity chefs, an infinity pool, an observation deck with uninterrupted 360˚views of Dubai, and an immersive glass-floor experience.
As well as creating a “floating event space and urban landmark” for the project, The Link will also reinforce the structural stability of both towers. Its diagonal tube structure will provide vertical and torsional strength, and allow their upper floors to utilise column-free spaces.
The towers themselves will house a luxury and an ultra-luxury hotel, high-end retail, offices and residential apartments. The buildings will be mainly composed of glass with external fins, allowing them to merge into the background and evoking the sense of a shimmering mirage.
The first tower will have of 67 floors and the second 57. Both towers are set on a three-storey podium dissected by the four-lane dual carriageway. The facade of this platform is inspired by horizontal layers of rock in the earth, while vertical terraces, landscaping and water features will create a feeling of ascent.
The podium will be topped by an accessible landscaped green roof, and visitors can also relax, socialise and enjoy public events in an air conditioned plaza between the two towers.
When complete the complex will have a built-up area of 480,000sq m incorporating residences, a hotel, serviced apartments, office space, and a retail podium known as The Gallery.
There will be 37,000sq m of premium office space, a 12,000sq m retail podium, a 90-key ultra luxury hotel, a 314-key luxury hotel, 94 serviced apartment, 263 residential apartments and 2,500 parking spaces. The hospitality portion will be operated by the One & Only hotel brand.
The development, situated between the old and new business districts of Dubai, will have overhead connectivity with Zabeel Park.
