Dubai Pearl first phase complete

Construction of the groundwork, foundations, basements and lower grounds floors of the four towers, which form the central section of the Dubai Pearl Phase 1, is now complete.

A total of 3.5M man hours have so far been spent since work started on site and over 60,000m3 cubic meter of concrete has been poured on one of the largest construction projects still being developed in the United Arab Emirates.

The development was designed by Schweger Associated Architects of Germany with consultant Arup and structural engineer Econstruct for client Pearl Dubai FZ. Main contractor is Al Habtoor Leighton Group.

The development is being labelled a “city withing a city” and will comprise a unique mix of high-end residential, retail, hotel, office and cultural space, including a purpose built theatre complex with an 1,800 seat auditorium, capable of hosting major global and regional entertainment events and shows.  It will also be the future home of the Dubai International Film Festival.

“In the meantime, with construction continuing on site, people can now see the superstructure rising above the bridges and roads that surround the Dubai Pearl site which is located at the base of Palm Jumeirah.  Dubai Pearl will begin to have a physical impact so everyone driving past the site will be able to follow its construction from now until completion.”
