ACI and Escan Real Estate to develop Dh2bn Escan Tower

Escan Commercial Tower
ACI Real Estate, the German developer, together with Escan Real Estate, has announced their plan to develop the only freehold commercial tower, the Escan Tower, on Sheikh Zayed Road at a cost of Dh.2billion.

The Escan Tower comprising 60 storey will offer a mixed-use space of 570,000 square feet on Shaikh Zayed Road, opposite Mazaya Center. The storey one to twenty will be exclusively reserved for office space, while floors twenty one to sixty will be set aside as residential units, apart from high-end retail and dining facilities.

Escan Tower owns the credit of holding "rare freehold status on prime real estate", reveals the Chairman of Escan, Saeed Mattar Bin Belaila. It is also the first freehold commercial building on the highway, which contributes significantly to the landscape of Sheikh Zayed Road.

The tower also includes a five-storey business center, and currently talks are on regarding the company which will brand the center. The selected company will be announced during the coming weeks, reveals the Managing Director of ACI, Robin Lohmann.

Ever-since its entry into the Dubai realty market in 2004, ACI Real Estate has invested more than Dh.10bn in Dubai. ACI is planning several new exciting projects by end of the year.
Escan has a portfolio of more than Dh.13bn but this year it is set to jump higher, and plans to touch Dh.20bn.
