Tameer Holding Investment, a Dubai-based property developer, has announced the completion of the superstructure on its 91-storey Elite Residence project, set to claim landmark status in Dubai Marina when finished.
The Dh1.7b project is on track to be completed later this year, with construction on the tower having already reached the final floor, the company said in a statement.
“When complete the tower will stand at 381 meters which will position it as one of the tallest residential buildings in Dubai and the world, it will undoubtedly be one of the most sought after residential properties in the area,” said Federico Tauber, President of Tameer.
The superstructure soars to a height of 355m, with the tower set to reach a final height of 381m. The structure consumed 85,000 cubic metres of concrete and 21,000 tonnes of steel, the company revealed. Construction during its peak progressed at a speed of up to 6 floors per month on typical floors, it added.
The 91-storey tower includes a mixture of 1 and 2-bedroom apartments and 3 and 4-bedroom penthouses, with a total of 697 apartments capable of housing 1,500 residents.
