Inspired by Olympian imagery and the waves of rising and sitting people cheering and encouraging the players as they watch in excitement the unraveling of a sporting event – the project’s driving architectural approach is to embody the dynamic atmosphere of Dubai land’s far-reaching ambitions with a striking and immediately recognizable visual icon.
Apart from its architectural dynamic, the design ensures all residential units and office levels with optimal views towards the Sporting Stadiums and Waterfront Park, towards the north and south respectively, as well as provide public amenities such as segregated underground parking, dual entrances, storage space, 24-hour security, top floor gym and health club as well as a rooftop solarium and swimming pool. As a mixed-use development, the tower offers 128 units of studios, 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments and an exclusive penthouse level. Targeting an international clientele, the areas per units range from 60 m2 for a studio to 650 m2 for a penthouse apartment, all accessible through a dedicate 4-lift core, including a service and freight lift for convenience.
The Dubai Sport City Development Guidelines called for surface parking for visitors. This was planned for the south entrance and to allow flexibility of access, the entrance halls were not completely segregated thus permitting visitors to access both offices and residential areas easily. To ensure a mix of functions, 8,107 m2 of open-plan offices are located on the Ground, Mezzanine and first 5 levels of the project and will be designed with first class IT facilities and support systems.
All resident and office users are supported with a four level underground parking facility offering a total capacity of 543 vehicles accessible through discreet parking entry and exit points at the north side of the plot.
