Structural works at The Alef Residences, serviced by W Dubai – The Palm, is 93% complete, while the hotel structure is already 100% complete, according to Al Sharq Investment.

The construction team has been working round the clock to meet targets with the hotel ‘topping out’ on 11 May 2016, and its completion will be 5 March 2017, meanwhile the residences’ ‘topping out’ is anticipated on 5 July this summer and completion in June 2017.

The overall percentage completion of the entire project, taking into account the total value spent is almost 48%.

Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) works are progressing in the hotel from the basement to level four, with almost 33% of installations complete, and façade work is moving ahead with almost 50% of the framing finished.

With 104 unique floor plans this means no two living spaces are the same. Architecturally, the structure is inspired by the wadis and bastakiya, representing the first development under the Alef brand set to have a global reach starting in the Middle East.

Currently under construction on a 46,840 sqm plot of land, the fully funded Alef Residences are scheduled for handover in Q2 2017.

A selection of two, three, four and five bedroom luxury homes offer from 4,800 to 15,000 sqft of spacious accommodation, with floor to ceiling ocean and skyline views, large balconies and gardens, some even with their own pool. The top floor is reserved for two single penthouses and three duplex penthouses. 

The residences are surrounded by a tropical landscaped garden and a 475m long white sandy beach.

The residences will also boast an exclusive private members’ club; the Club 104, available to residents and select VIPs. In addition, residents will have VIP access to the W, its 24/7 concierge service and amenities, including six dining destinations.
