Sorouh elevates second 750tn bridge in record time
Third Al Reem Island Gate Tower linked with 245m high penthouse bridge
Sorouh Real Estate has successfully lifted the second 750-ton penthouse bridge section to the top of its 65-storey Gate Tower development on Al Reem Island.
The second section only took three days to lift 245m into place. The identical first section took four days to lift. As with the first section, it will now take approximately two weeks to weld and bolt the penthouse bridge into place.
The prefabricated bridge section is 40m long and 30.6m wide, with a total area of 1,165m2. The third bridge section will be lifted in to position in April.
The three tower mixed-use development will have 16 penthouses with views of Abu Dhabi Island and the Arabian Gulf. Each penthouse will have two storeys and an indoor swimming pool.
The property is part of the Shams Abu Dhabi development. The Gate Towers were designed by the UAE firm Khatib & Alami and US firm Arquitectonica. The main contractor is the Arabian Construction Company, while Orascom completed enabling works. Construction on the enormous project began in 2008.
