Empire Heights, Business Bay, - DubaiCribz Property Guide
by GPD Investments
Empire Heights has been designed with you, the discerning corporate user in mind! The landmark twin 16 storey towers are supported by an imposing three-storey high podium offering: fantastic retail, restaurants and cafes and a beautifully landscaped alfresco promenade. The podium also provides that all important parking for you, your associates, staff and visitors. In all Empire Heights provides the perfect work-life balance. This stunning building adds to the vista that already boasts the world famous Burj Khalifa and the skyline of DIFC.
Common areas are superbly appointed with superior finishes and elegant design. Empire Heights has been developed by GPD Investments - a European property investment and development group with offices in Dubai, London and Geneva. The project was fully financed by a syndicate of Barclays Bank plc and Al Ahli Bank of
Kuwait, ensuring the project was taken through to completion. Dubai Civil Engineering LLC were the main contractor with Currie and Brown Ltd. as our appointed project and cost managers. Turner and Townsend acted for the lenders. Phase A of the project was sold in its entirety before completion. GPD Investments are now marketing Phase B of the project with a limited selection of commercial and retail stock available. This allows you to secure prime space in one of Dubai’s best commercial projects thus far. Designed to ensure the highest levels of efficiency and economic use of space, the office units enable the client to make bespoke alterations without the need to make costly structural changes. With GFA* sizes from 1,381 sqft to 2,135 sqft per unit, each office is a well-dimensioned, self-contained entity for a smaller to mid-size corporate user.
A typical floor plate is elliptical in shape with gross area of approximately 10,524 sqft, divided into six units on each floor. Units can be easily combined not only on one floor but also across several floors, and because they are grouped around a centre core this arrangement virtually eliminates wastage of circulation space, the aisles of the core providing easy access to individual office units. All units are supplied with a pantry and a dedicated bathroom.The accessibility of the complex is excellent with direct links from Doha Road, Emaar Boulevard and Al Khail Road. You won’t need to send out location maps to your clients; Dubai Mall is just a few minutes walk away! GPD have also developed an Empire Heights Rental Program which allows tenants to secure and manage their office space by dealing with one dedicated party only. Owners have the benefit of a specialized, dedicated asset manager, maximizing economic exploitation and return on investment.
On the third floor of the podium are generously sized offices, ranging from approximately 2,487 sqft to 4,609 sqft, which cater
to the needs of the substantial SME section of Dubai’s corporate world. Again easy to combine, these offices offer the advantages of a Grade-A location and combine top class reputation with affordability.
Business Bay is an ambitious 64 Million Square foot freehold district that is currently under development directly next to Downtown Dubai. The development is expected to have 240 buildings that vary between Office & Residential Towers.
Running through the heart of Business Bay is the Dubai Creek that was opened in the final quarter of 2017. The creek is planned to be a primary attraction in Business Bay, offering the community beautiful waterfront views and a promenade that will have plenty of dining and recreational options.
The best features of Business Bay are:
- Central location within Dubai.
- Easy access to key roads such as Al Khail Road and Sheikh Zayed Road.
- A mix of office and residential towers in close proximity.
- The Dubai Creek
The Business Bay development is one of the most exciting in Dubai and has excellent potential for the future, it is important to note though that the area still needs time to develop as there are still many plots that are under construction or vacant.
