Wasl have redefined their business model by developing the next generation of building typologies on their significant land bank across Dubai. Currently, Wasl are constructing a series of residential buildings near the maritime Port & Dry Docks area of the city having previously retained AK Design to complete the design phase which is based on contemporary architectural styling and subsequently supervise the building phase. Consequently, the project has progressed into a more satisfying architectural massing which is aesthetically superior to the bland buildings which dominate the vicinity.
Space program considerations include full plot area basement car parking, ground floor retail inclusive of food and beverage units and a mix of 1 bed, 2 bed and 3 bed units located on the upper levels. This development comprises four rectangular shaped structures and the building volumes with adjacent new pedestrian streets are now evident on site. Current work is focused on the construction of internal walls, installations of MEP services and preparation for later installation of facades and glazing systems. AK Design have deployed a full construction supervision team to manage the works to compliant completion.
