And this will coincide with the opening of an Ibis Hotel, according JLL, which along with CBRE, is the development's commercial property leasing agent.

Dubai Trade Centre District is a mixed-use project at the heart of Dubai’s central business district located between the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre and Emirates Towers.

The development has been designed by Hopkins Architects and is being built by Al Futtaim Carillion, with three Grade-A office blocks and an Ibis Hotel being delivered in the first phase. Mace and WSP round off the professional team.

C1, the first building in line to be completed on the site, will have a total office area of 150,000ft² over eight floors.

JLL’s head of leasing in Dubai, Toby Hall, said pre-leasing has begun ahead of C1’s completion in Q4 2015, which is also the date set for the completion of the Ibis Hotel.

He said the second building, C4, will be completed in Q1 2017 and the third building, C2, in Q1 2018, bringing the total office area to about 1mn ft².

“The pre-leasing is on the critical path for us,” said Hall. “We’re looking to secure large anchor tenants. We’re in talks with a lot of tenants, probably a key five or six who are looking to take between 50,000-100,000ft² each.”
