The concourse, dubbed The Linx, will be open to the public and will offer a choice of attractions, performances, Michelin Star restaurants, and lounges.

The three-storey retail podium at ground level, named The Gallery, will house retail outlets as well as several retail and leisure facilities.

UAE-based Alec was appointed lead contractor for the One Za’abeel in September 2017. The contract scope includes site excavation, preparatory works, and the construction of a seven-floor basement.
