Residential High Rise, Tall Buildings

DAMAC Maison Tower

Dubai, UAE

The Burjside Boulevard tower is located in the Downtown District of Dubai offering guests and residents alike, breathtaking views of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.  Burjside is Damac Properties' first serviced apartment project for short or long term guests seeking a home away from home, and will be managed as per five-star international standards.  The 49 storey building bridges the divide between high-end residential apartments and luxury five-star hotels and includes an entire floor dedicated to leisure amenities. The temperature controlled swimming pool will be the centre piece of the leisure floor, with a fine cuisine restaurant and lounge overlooking the pool.  Accommodation design includes a choice of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, all with their own internal gourmet kitchens and European stainless steel appliances.  ZAS applied its acute attention to décor detail to ensure a sense of opulence and luxury living is achieved throughout. The podium façade is a rich composition of materials that includes juxtaposed types of glass and multi colored aluminum composite panels.  The structural framework and cladding system of the tower had to be carefully designed to withstand the extreme temperatures of the region and to accommodate the wind pressures and seismic loads.  With its close proximity to the Burj Khalifa, the new tower required a detailed wind tunnel study to ensure the design complied with best practice safety standards.
