Al Yasat Holdings LLC, one of the region’s leading real estate developers, has announced that it has finished work on the 22nd floor of the 47-storey The One Tower commercial project at TECOM C on Sheikh Zayed Road.

Once completed, the tower will feature more than 380,000 square feet of executive offices, a business center, more than 16,000 square feet of showroom space, restaurants, a health club and a penthouse. The project has been designed to provide unobstructed 360-degree views of Dubai Media City and its prominent developments. It will be the only commercial building to be connected to the TECOM C Metro Station, via a footbridge linking the tower’s podium 1 to the rail terminal, which incidentally also makes it the only building in Dubai to be directly connected to a metro station.

Lead contractor Al Shafar General Contracting Co. currently has 900 staff working on The One Tower, which was designed by Dewan Architects and Engineers, an architectural design consultancy with 25 years of expertise in the UAE market.

“We are keen to accelerate the development of The One Tower as one of the key projects within TECOM C, the extension of Dubai Media City. So far we are on schedule to deliver this iconic structure and further raise the bar for office developments in Dubai. The tower reflects our prioritization of strategically-located property developments,” said Mr. Rashid Mohammed Almazroui , Chairman, Al Yasat Holdings.

Facilities and amenities of The One Tower include outdoor swimming pool, café/juice bar, specialty restaurants on the seventh floor, banking hall, recreation area, state-of-the-art health club with sauna, steam and fitness equipment, security surveillance cameras and reception desk with round the clock security.

The One Tower is one of the key developments under Al Yasat Holdings’ portfolio of commercial and residential projects in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
