The new wasl Tower creates a new landmark in Dubai. The project is comprised of a high-rise tower and a multiple level parking building. The building complex is a mixed used tower with residential areas, offices, serviced apartments, restaurants & bars, a spa and a swimming pool as well as a 5-Star hotel of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. The built-up land is about 7880 m² directly in the Al Wasl District and is located directly on the famous Sheikh Zayed Road. The structural systems consist of a central concrete core plus outriggers on 4 levels. It is embedded harmoniously into the architectural design of the building while fulfilling all requirements with regards to safety, economy and ecology. An innovative building shape is combined with an efficient and economic load bearing structure.
