?Rainbow? twin towers will see the light of day

Zabeel Investments and United Holdings have formed a joint venture to build the multicoloured US $476 million (AED1.75 billion) Tiara United Towers, on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.

Zabeel Investments and United Holdings have formed a joint venture to build the multicoloured US $476 million (AED1.75 billion) Tiara United Towers, on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.

The 61-storey twinned towers are slated for completion in 2009. They will feature a colouration technique that will make the buildings appear in multiple colours. The exterior of the building will also feature leaf-like veins spreading across the surface, and the scheme of the façade will follow the colour spectrum.

The project is the first partnership for Zabeel Investments and United Holdings, a Dubai-based holding company with interests in commercial, residential and retail property development, investments in hospitality and recreation projects, as well as areas of finance.

One tower will be dedicated to office space, while the other will house a five-star business hotel comprising 400 rooms.

Mohammed Ali Al Hashimi, executive chairman, Zabeel Investments, said: “The concept and planning for Tiara United Towers has been under discussion for months. With Dubai’s current shortage of office space, and consistent need for more short stay hotel rooms Tiara United Towers will feed a gap in the Dubai commerce market.”
