ALEC has topped out 57-storey Tower B of Ithra Dubai’s two-tower mega development One Za’abeel.
The topping out of Tower B comes months after ALEC, along with other stakeholders of the project, completed the installation of ‘The Link’, one of the longest cantilevered structures in the world, which bridges the towers 100m above the ground.
Tower B features seven basement floors, ground floor, three podiums, and 57 storeys, in addition to multiple amenities, and ultra-luxury simplex and duplex residential units.
The overall construction of Tower B was completed using 35,000 tonnes of rebar and 176,535m3 of concrete.
One Za’abeel is equipped with an automated car parking system, which consists of three lifts traveling at 0.9m/sec and four shuttles traveling at 2.0m/sec.
The system also has three transfer areas for entry and exit, which serves two levels and can accommodate 242 vehicles.
Commenting on the milestone, Kez Taylor, CEO of ALEC, said: “It has been a pleasure to watch One Za’abeel come to life in collaboration with our client, Ithra Dubai and stakeholders. From the installation of The Link to the top out of Tower B, we are incredibly proud of the milestones we have achieved to date.”
Meanwhile, Barry Lewis, managing director of ALEC, said: “In topping out Tower B we are one step closer to completing this major project, which will not only make a valued addition to Dubai’s skyline, but serve as a reminder of the emirate’s commitment to pushing the engineering limits of what is possible.”
