Seven Tides moves into Ibn Battuta office complex
New HQ covers 10,000ft2 on top floor of 11-storey building
Dubai-based developer Seven Tides has moved into new upgraded and fully refurbished office space in its flagship Ibn Battuta Gate office complex.
The move serves a practical purpose, consolidating its growing management team into one location, as well as showcasing the ‘Gate’s’ potential as high quality business space, conveniently located near to Dubai World Central and the proposed new Expo 2020 site. `
“Besides showcasing our potential our office space holds to our partners, clients and other visitors, the location is now key. In the wake of Dubai’s successful Expo 2020 bid and the proposed site, between Dubai Investment Park and Dubai World Central (DWC), office space will be at a premium in what you could say is the new, ‘New Dubai’. Ibn Battuta Gate is literally just 15 minutes away by car and of course we have a dedicated Metro station, which will obviously link to the proposed rail extension towards DWC,” said Abdulla Bin Sulayem, CEO, Seven Tides.
Seven Tides’ new HQ covers approximately 10,000ft2 on the top floor, of the 11-storey building. It will accommodate Seven Tides’ 40-strong management team and comes complete with a multi-purpose ‘comfy’ staff lounge.
Other features of the open-plan style office, which comes complete with glass partitions, to enhance the natural daylight, include an aquarium – the result of a staff survey which revealed that they valued the merits of a water feature and a lime green inspired staff café. All of the staff were encouraged to offer their design ideas and were heavily involved in the layout and choice of fixtures and fittings to stimulate the overall atmosphere and mood.
“We also have ample free parking and we are next to Ibn Battuta shopping mall, a multi-screen cinema and the five-star Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel, which is ideal for corporate entertainment and accommodating overseas visitors, with residential apartments available for longer staying guests or indeed members of staff," said Bin Sulayem.
“As the DWC and Expo 2020 related projects are awarded, it will undoubtedly create demand for quality office space, conveniently located with a wealth of entertainment venues on hand,” he added.
Seven Tides’ active portfolio now includes the 293 room Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa, 442 apartment and 14 penthouses that make up the Anantara Residences Dubai Palm Jumeirah; the Mövenpick Ibn Battuta Gate hotel, Ibn Battuta Gate Offices and Residences; and Oceana Residences on Palm Jumeirah which includes the West 14th Restaurant and Dukes Hotel, London.
