  • It contains 188 luxury hotel rooms and suites, high-end restaurants, health spas, conference facilities, grade A offices, and 229 uniquely designed branded residences.

  • Uptown Tower’s architecture was conceptualized by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. Adrian Smith designed the Burj Khalifa while he was Design Partner at SOM Chicago.

  • The building ‘replicates the brilliance of diamonds through its faceted glass façade that illuminates the interior spaces with natural light while filtering out harsh glare’.

  • The interiors of the luxury hotel, including the restaurants and health spa, were designed by New York based architecture and design firm Rockwell Group.

  • A two-level central plaza on the podium includes coffee shops, restaurants, retail spaces and entertainment zones.

  • Rockwell Group’s scope of work included the design of the super tall tower’s first premium 5-Star hotel and branded residences, which went on sale in early 2018.

  • The contract to build Uptown Tower, the first super-tall tower in Uptown Dubai district, was awarded to BESIX (Belhasa Six Construct).

  • The super-tall is a LEED Gold Certified Building and home to a state-of-the-art DMCC Business Hub.

  • By January 2022 the developer announced that nearly 25% of the commercial space had been pre-leased.

  • During the tower's construction, over 23,000 trucks delivered approximately 140,000 cubic metres of concrete, with around 30,000 tonnes of steel used for reinforcement.

  • In mid 2022 the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the world’s leading authority on diamonds, coloured stones and pearls, announced that it is to establish a new laboratory to serve the global gem trade in Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC).

  • The GIA laboratory will occupy over 41,000 square feet on two floors in Uptown Tower in a nine-year deal. It is set to open in mid-2023 and would see up to 500 skilled new jobs created in DMCC’s business district.

  • The UAE is currently the world’s largest rough diamond trading hub, recording $11 billion worth of rough and polished diamond trade in Q1 2022, a 36 percent year-on-year increase.

  • As of August 2022 all of the office floors have been fully leased, prior to the towers completion.

  • In February 2023, sales were launched for the residential component, which comprises 227 signature branded residences on the top 28 floors.

  • The SO/ Uptown Dubai Residences range from one-beds to penthouses. There are 142 one-bedroom units ranging from 627–1,186 square feet; 60 two-bedroom units from 1,038–1,669 square feet; 12 two-bedroom duplexes from 1,595–2,061 square feet; 9 three-bedroom residences of 1,513–1,908 square /feet; and 4 penthouses of 2,993–3,345 square feet.

Excerpts from the brochure
