Contract Awarded for New 78-Story Grande Tower in Dubai's Opera District

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 27 September 2018

SSH has been chosen by Emaar and appointed by WSP to deliver architecture services on the new Grande Tower in Dubai’s Opera District. The tower will be located opposite the Burj Park and Burj Lake.

The 78-story tower will feature 866 apartments including one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units, as well as large penthouses. The tower will also feature a promenade level that that will accommodate amenities and retail outlets.

“The tower will be a significant addition to the Downtown Dubai skyline and will become a contributing and symbolic landmark in the development of the Opera District. SSH is extremely honored to once again be working alongside Emaar in delivering a project that will exemplify a luxurious setting for contemporary living and offer premium experiences for residents and guests alike,” said Michael Byron, resident director – UAE, at SSH.

Discussing the tower’s design, SSH says “a curved footprint embraces the fountain lake and mimics the organic sweeping lines of the existing landscape. A balanced rhythm of undulating piers and slim vertical fins accentuates the elegance and verticality of the tower up to its delicate crown.”

The podium’s upper level is set to feature a swimming pool and a deck that’s orientated to benefit from the Dubai Fountain views.
