Residence in Dubai

Dubai will build the world’s largest residential building

Dubai’s Al Habtoor Group has recently unveiled the Habtoor Tower, an extraordinary residential building boasting unrivaled luxury and becoming the world’s largest of its kind.

Positioned at a prime location on Sheikh Zayed Road, alongside the Dubai Water Canal and offering stunning views of the iconic Burj Khalifa in the Business Bay neighborhood, the tower stands as a testament to innovation and sustainability. Strategically situated close to the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), it forms part of Al Habtoor City, a legally established area in 2016.

The Habtoor Tower incorporates ingenious construction techniques, drawing on the expertise gained from previous landmark projects such as the Burj Al Arab, Dubai International Airport’s Terminals 1 and 3, and the Abu Dhabi Officers’ Club. Al Habtoor Group, led by Khalaf Al Habtoor, the founding chairman, envisions the tower as a pinnacle of excellence, delivered with exceptional quality and efficiency.

Spanning an impressive 3,517,313 square feet of built-up space across 81 floors (G+7+73), the multi-billion-dirham Habtoor Tower accommodates a total of 1,701 lavish residential units. The ambitious project is slated for completion within a remarkable 36-month timeframe.

Al Habtoor proudly unveils some of the groundbreaking construction methods employed in the tower’s development. Notably, the implementation of an 80-meter-deep barrette, a deep piling foundation system coupled with a plunge steel column reaching a height of 15 meters, accelerates the superstructure construction while saving six months of valuable time. This pioneering structural system, introduced for the first time in Dubai, was developed by a local engineering firm associated with Al Habtoor Group. It has been rigorously validated through meticulous engineering peer reviews conducted by esteemed experts from Structural San Francisco, Imperial College London, and Terrasol Paris.

Moreover, the Habtoor Tower adopts the highest grade of steel, measuring 600 MPa, a first in the UAE, resulting in reduced usage of steel reinforcement bars and subsequently lower carbon emissions. Al Habtoor emphasizes the significant environmental impact of this innovative construction technique, which achieves carbon emissions less than 50% of traditional buildings. In line with its commitment to sustainability, Al Habtoor Group is pursuing LEED Platinum Certification, the highest recognition in green building rating systems, through evaluations by environmental experts.

Khalaf Al Habtoor concludes by emphasizing that the Habtoor Tower exemplifies the nation’s vision of leading in innovation, responsible development, and environmental preservation for future generations.
