Omniyat Group Commences Construction on One at Palm Jumeirah Megaproject in Dubai

Developer Omniyat Group commenced construction recently on a new megaproject in Dubai. Called One at Palm Jumeirah, the project is an AED 2.5 billion premium residential development located at the trunk of the world famous Palm archipelago that will be the single tallest residential property on the Palm.

Designed by international architecture firm SOMA, One at Palm Jumeirah will offer 90 residences within the 25-story structure. Unveiled at the Cityscape Global Conference in the Dubai World Trade Center in September, it is scheduled for completion by 2017.

"Throughout the next three years, the Omniyat Group and our partner DSI will work jointly to build One at Palm to a standard well beyond anything ever seen," said Mahdi Amjad, CEO of Omniyat. "One at Palm Jumeirah is specially crafted for the most privileged of the privileged few, which shows the commitment reflected in our design approach."

New York-based SOMA won the commission from a pool of world famous architects. Developer Omniyat, one of the most prolific luxury developers in the Gulf region, sought a revolutionary design for One at Palm, one that would help achieve record-setting prices by delivering an extraordinary living experience for its buyers. SOMA's work is under construction around the world, including a 690-foot-tall glass and steel condominium tower in Tribeca, a 168-room hotel and 231-residence condominium project in Dubai, the luxury Shaza Kempinski Hotel in Doha, and a private beach residence community in Beirut.

"Our design for One at Palm shatters the predictable condo tower mold of curtain-walled containers by creating private villas in the sky, offering seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor space, and capturing the most remarkable views in a way that allows each residence to seemingly float above the sea," Mr. Abboud said. "We are honored for Omniyat's confidence in our vision for this spectacular site, and proud to help set a new standard for innovation and luxury experience in a market that is known for pushing those boundaries."
