Besix won the contract for building the first super-high tower in the Uptown Dubai district (DMCC) of the Dubai Multi-Trade Center near the Jumeirah Lake Towers.

However, as part of its contract, Besix will build the 78-storey Uptown Tower, which offers views of Dubai’s docks and skyline. Besix, Dubai-based presence will work with Belhasa Six Construct.

DMCC said the new tower “replicates the brilliance of diamonds through its faceted glass façade that illuminates the interior spaces with natural light while filtering out harsh glare”.

Also the group said it aimed to portray the luxury hotel’s interiors, food and beverage outlets and the health spas designed by Rockwell Group, as well as the distinct and courageous personality of the region.
